About Us

This site is being developed as a resource for those searching the internet for anti-death penalty information and resources. Capital punishment is a topic that brings up deep emotional reactions for those on both sides of the issue and conflict for those who are undecided how they feel.

In 2018, the United States executed 25 people and over 2,700 prisoners remain on “death row.” It is one of only 56 nations in the world that still practice capital punishment.

At a time when the rest of the world has all but abandoned capital punishment as barbaric, not only does the United States carry on the practice – it carries it out in a way that echoes the racism and discrimination that the civil rights movement was fought to combat.
