Rep. Ayanna Pressley has introduced legislation to abolish the federal death penalty. Add your name now to tell Congress: The death penalty is not an effective tool to stop crime. Government makes mistakes, the system is biased against minorities and the poor, and it is a cruel hoax to suggest that executions provide healing to murder victim family members. https://actionnetwork.org/petitions/tell-congress-the-death-penalty-is-wrong
