Help us end the death penalty!

Your donation helps us educate the American public about our unfixable death penalty and the terrible human costs it places on all of us. Through my books and talks and social media outreach, we reach hundreds of thousands of people each year. But not without your help! Please donate today.

Ministry Against the Death Penalty logo

The Ministry Against the Death Penalty fosters creative and reflective programs that awaken hearts and minds and inspire social change. We believe:

  • in the dignity and rights of all persons and recognize that government-sanctioned killing and the practice of torture is a violation of those rights and a denial of human dignity;
  • that the criminal justice system in the United States disproportionately affects poor people and people of color;
  • that prison reform and the abolition of capital punishment will support necessary systemic change.

We are committed to promoting compassionate alternatives to the death penalty, including restorative justice and funding for victims’ services.
