Let’s give the death penalty the boot in Wyoming!

TAKE ACTION NOW

The problems with the death penalty are well known and damning. The practice is irreparably biased; it delays justice for victims’ families and draws out their suffering; and it is ineffective in deterring crime. Additionally, the death penalty costs Wyoming hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars every year – as it does for every state in which the death penalty is still law.

In the 2019 legislative session, a bill to repeal the death penalty drew far more support from state lawmakers than ever before, and we got very, very close to passing it. The bill had 13 co-sponsors in the House and five in the Senate, and had the support of leadership in both chambers. Ultimately, the bill passed in the House but failed with an 18-12 vote in the Senate.

We can do better – but we can’t do it alone. Send your legislators a note asking them to support the repeal of the death penalty in 2020.
