Thank your legislators for supporting the death penalty repeal
State by state, our country is moving away from the death penalty because it's racist, arbitrary, inhumane, and prone to error.
Wyoming is closer than ever to ending the death penalty, but we need your help.
In the 2019 Wyoming legislative session, a bill to repeal the death penalty drew far more support from state lawmakers than ever before. The bill had 13 co-sponsors in the House and five in the Senate and had leadership support in both chambers. Ultimately, the bill passed in the House but failed with an 18-12 vote in the Senate.
This year, the Wyoming House of Representatives narrowly missed meeting the 2/3 supermajority of votes required to consider legislation that would repeal the death penalty during the legislature's budget session.
Let's thank the legislators running for re-election who have supported the death penalty repeal and ask them for their continued support.
The time to take up a bill ending the death penalty in Wyoming is now. Let's make a repeal happen in 2021.
