1) TAKE ACTION
Write a letter, send an email, call, fax or tweet:

  • Welcoming the positive vote in both chambers of the legislature to repeal New Hampshire’s death penalty;
  • Encouraging the Governor either to sign Senate Bill 593 or to allow it to become law;
  • Noting that the death penalty is on the decline in the USA, and that a clear majority of countries have abolished the death penalty in law or practice, recognizing its fundamental flaws.

Contact these two officials by 14 June, 2018:
