Repeal the Federal Death Penalty

Until recently, Congressional repeal of the federal death penalty was not thought politically viable. But in January 2021, lawmakers introduced The Federal Death Penalty Prohibition Act (H.R. 262/S. 582) which would abolish the federal death penalty.

Now over a year since its introduction, national decision-makers from both sides of the aisle need to hear that ending the federal death penalty is still a top priority. This legislation will need strong bipartisan support in order to pass.
