This Week: Wear The Message & Help Stop Executions!

Death Penalty Action is leading the effort to highlight the downward trend of executions even as the United States approaches its 1500th execution since 1977. But real change doesn’t happen in a day or a week or a month. It’s a long road to abolition, and together we are making the difference.

Please help Death Penalty Action lead on this issue by chipping in $5 or more right now using this link: or click here to use Paypal.

This week we have a special offer: We’ll send a t-shirt like this one to anyone who chips in $50 or more before June 1st — while supplies last! (We currently have adult sizes small to 3X in various colors.)

Work to stop executions doesn’t happen without support from friends like YOU. Death Penalty Action is currently raising funds to support protests on the ground at the site of the 1500th execution in the United States since 1977. At this writing on May 28th, the 1500th execution may be July 31st in Texas. This will change if there is a stay in the Alabama execution set for Thursday, or if new dates are added.

All funds raised will help raise awareness and coordinate on-the-ground activities around the date of the execution. Your contribution today will make an impact, whether you donate $5, $50, $1500, or even more. Every bit helps.


  1. The 1499th execution is set for Thursday, May 30, in Alabama. Christopher Price is scheduled to be killed for his murder of Bill Lynn. Take action here: and also, call Governor Ivey at 334–242–7100 to ask her to stop the execution because, quoting her, “All life is sacred.”
