Please join us in saying no to executions in California

We urgently need your help!

On June 8, California's oversight agency rejected the proposed lethal injection regulations, citing many of the objections raised by members of the public in the comment process. Less than three days later, the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) proposed minor changes to the procedures and opened another fifteen-day comment period.  These minor changes-made practically overnight-create even more civil rights and civil liberties problems, not less. An analysis of the changes is available here.

While Gov. Schwarzenegger continues to waste hundreds of millions on a death penalty system that is broken and cannot be fixed, he has proposed draconian cuts to vital services for all Californians.

Please join us in saying no to executions! The deadline for taking action is Friday June, 25th at 5pm PST. (You do not need to be a CA resident to take action!)

Please personalize your letter and make it as long as you want. The more letters we can generate, the better chance we have of stopping executions once and for all--this is not just about lethal injection! Your letters made a difference last time, please take 30 seconds to do it again.


Thank you,

Stefanie Faucher
