Pledge: "I support repeal of the death penalty"

Pledge: "I support repeal of the death penalty"

Since 1973, at least 155 people have been freed after evidence revealed that they were wrongfully sentenced to die. That’s more than one innocent person exonerated for every ten who’ve been executed. 

Despite the best intentions, we can’t be right 100% of the time. When there is a life is on the line, we can't afford the risk.

The death penalty is under a national spotlight. Now is the time to speak out for repeal!

Think we've never executed an innocent person? With the death penalty, even one mistake can be deadly. Sign the petition.
