Send a letter to your legislators

Let your voice be heard in the statehouse by telling your lawmakers how you feel about the death penalty. Enter your zip code, and you will be automatically taken to a sample letter based on whether your state has the death penalty or not.

See our sample talking points to get started, but be sure to put your letter in your own words.

Tips for writing your letter:

  • Your name and address will be automatically added at the bottom of the letter, ensuring your representatives know you live in their district.
  • Add information specific to your state.  See if there is relevant news in your state by visiting EJUSA's Newsline and filtering by news in your state.
  • Focus on what motivates you most: Which of the death penalty's flaws truly worry you?
