Take a stand against the death penalty!


In 2014 we've seen the horrific botched executions of Michael Lee Wilson and Clayton Lockett in Oklahoma, Dennis McGuire in Ohio, and Joseph Wood in Arizona. States are trying increasingly desperate measures to cloak their executions in secrecy. A new study showed us that 1 in every 25 death row inmates could possibly be innocent. And we continue to waste valuable dollars that could be better spent on public safety or education.

The evidence is clear - the death penalty is a total failure and a violation of human rights.

It's time to take a stand.  Sign the petition to stay involved, participate in action alerts, and get the latest death penalty news.
