The death penalty is one of the great moral issues facing our country, yet most people rarely think about it and very few of us take the time to delve deeply enough into this issue to be able to make an informed decision about it.
This website is my invitation to you to take that time, to learn, to explore and to reflect.
My work with the Ministry Against the Death Penalty depends on contributions from people like you. You can help us to change hearts and minds throughout the country by supporting my talks and boosting our social media campaigns that provide a voice for people on death row, for their families and for the families of victims, who all suffer through the death penalty.
We live in turbulent times when assaults on human rights are public policy, when bigotry is encouraged by those who should provide moral leadership, and when the institutions that are supposed to offer protection are used to harm and enshrine injustice. Join our conversation on how to keep working for justice and a healthy, peaceful world when the odds look insurmountable.
