2018 could be the year Washington abolishes the death penalty!
There is growing momentum to abolish the death penalty this year, with strong bipartisan effort.
2018 is a short session, so our lobby day is early in the year! Help ring in the new year by telling your legislators that you think 2018 is the time to kill the death penalty. We will be joined by death row exoneree Kirk Bloodsworth who will speak to us in the morning session and lobby alongside us this day.
Registrations will close on January 23. Registrations require your full address so that we can schedule a meeting for you with your legislators. After you register, please also sign the postcard (link below) to leave behind with your legislators!
