The New Abolitionist

The New Abolitionist is the newsletter of the Campaign to End the Death Penalty.

The New Abolitionist has been in print since late 1997. We hope you will browse our archives to look at some of amazing stories of struggle we have been involved in and reported on over the years.

The newsletter publishes articles taking up broader issues and debates related to the death penalty and our movement as well as featuring contributions from local chapter members reporting on anti-death penalty organizing and on individual cases that our chapters are working around.

Each issue features writings from prisoners and former prisoners and family members of prisoners – many of whom are active in our chapters
