Partnership to End Executions

Today is March 1st — Death Penalty Abolition Day. It’s the anniversary of the date in 1847 that Michigan became the first English-speaking territory in the world to abolish the death penalty. Our friend Marietta Jaeger-Lane compiled the story years ago. Today we updated and republished it. Please share from our Facebook​ and/or Twitter​ pages.
