ACLU of Oklahoma Advocacy Day: The State of Capital Punishment in Oklahoma
For years the State of Oklahoma has been proven time and time again, that the criminal legal system fails to protect the innocent and persons with serious mental health disabilities from execution. And it is overdue for the legislature to step in!
Capital punishment is in a decline nationwide, while support is at a historic low in the modern era. Oklahoma joins only a handful of other states in carrying out executions. The continued use of the death penalty has no place in any society that values human dignity and justice. It is time we end it once and for all.
Join us for the ACLU of Oklahoma's Advocacy Day at the Oklahoma State Capitol on Thursday, April 6, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.! You can expect a deep dive into the impacts of capital punishment in Oklahoma through panel discussions, advocacy trainings, guest speakers, and of course direct advocacy with your legislators. Register as an individual, organization, or even friend group!
All questions about registration or Advocacy Day events can be directed, by email, to our Organizing Manager, Jasmine Brown-Jutras at email@example.com.
See you at the Capital!
