For these four days, death penalty abolitionists from around the country will gather at the steps of the Supreme Court to call for an end to capital punishment in the United States. It is an energizing grassroots week of training, advocacy, action, community and education. Tens of thousands of tourists and locals, from all over the U.S. and throughout the world, pass by our vigil and table, so the opportunity for dialogue and discussion at a real grass-roots level is invaluable to the movement.
Additionally, each evening we hear stories from murder victims’ family members, death row exonerees, death row families and leaders in the national abolition movement.
We hope you will consider joining the more than 50 anti-death penalty activists who come regularly from across the U.S. and Canada - from Florida to Alaska and everywhere inbetween - to join together for public education and outreach at the steps of the Supreme Court.
