MARYLAND LEGISLATURE ABOLISHES DEATH PENALTY

Click on image to enlarge

Congratulations to all those who worked so hard on the abolition campaign in Maryland. Your victory is a joyous moment for all of us working this issue.

All that’s left is for Governor O’Malley to add his signature, which will make Maryland the 18th state without the death penalty.

This is a huge moment for our work, because it signals yet again that the death penalty is on its way out. Maryland is the sixth state in as many years to end its death penalty, and the first south of the Mason Dixon Line. We can do this here.

Now is the time to make a special contribution to your Coalition in Kentucky to honor this momentous victory in Maryland.

Please consider sending your own generous donation to KCADP, PO BOX 3092, Louisville KY 40201, or click here to use our secure PayPal account.

Only with friends like you can KCADP grow its capacity to make the difference here in Kentucky.  Even if you have donated recently, I ask you to give generously again today. And if you have never made a contribution to KCADP, now is perfect time to start!

KCADP is about to employ a full-time organizer in Kentucky to move our efforts forward. Your contribution at this time will cover costs associated with activities generated by this new staff member: travel, printing, event fees and other expenses.

Our abolition efforts are succeeding, and we’ve got to do our part.  We’re watching as death penalty repeal legislation also moves forward in Delaware and Colorado this year. Sign up for our eNews to learn more about these efforts.

We must build on the momentum here in Kentucky to help legislators like State Senator Gerald Neal and State Rep. Carl Rollins, who introduced repeal legislation in the General Assembly session that just ended.

Please donate now to make sure we have the resources we need to continue our vital work to end executions here, so that we are doing our part to help abolish the death penalty across this country. With your help, together we will win this struggle.

In addition to monetary donations, we can accept shares of stock. Email us at staff@kcadp.org to arrange for a donation of stock.
