Tell Oregon lawmakers THANK YOU for supporting SB 1013.
TAKE ACTION NOW
The death penalty is so deeply flawed that it can’t be fixed. We are proud of Oregon for limiting the use of this cruel, costly, and unjust punishment in our state. Please take action to let lawmakers know they did the right thing!
We must show that Oregonians are ready to end the death penalty in our state. Every move away from the death penalty is a victory for Oregon.
Together, we worked hard last legislative session to help pass meaningful reforms to our criminal justice system, including SB 1013, which limits the instances in which the death penalty can be applied in sentencing. We celebrated its passage. But some were calling for the new law to be changed.
Governor Kate Brown announced on Wednesday that she will not hold a special session to amend SB 1013. This means that the new law that limits the application of the death penalty in Oregon will not be watered down.
We are thrilled with this outcome, but our opposition is not and they are letting lawmakers know it. That is why it is critically important for Oregonians tell their lawmakers that they appreciate and support the work to limit the death penalty in our state.
Please help out by taking action!
Let them know you appreciate all the efforts from Oregon lawmakers who continue to support SB 1013.
