Faith Leaders: Stand Against Federal Executions!

Faith Leaders: Stand Against Federal Executions!

As the rest of the country moves away from the death penalty, the Trump administration announced on Monday another attempt to resume the federal death penalty by scheduling the executions of four people. We need your help – and your unique voice – to prevent these executions from going forward.

Joint statement from faith leaders:

As faith leaders from a diverse range of traditions, we call on President Trump and Attorney General Barr to stop the scheduled federal executions. As our country grapples with the COVID 19 pandemic, an economic crisis, and systemic racism in the criminal legal system, we should be focused on protecting and preserving life, not carrying out executions.
