Death Penalty Alternatives for Arizona salutes Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley for signing the death-penalty-repeal bill into law. His vision and leadership made Maryland the 18th state to repeal the death penalty—the sixth in as many years.
The momentum that we have seen in support of abolition, not only in Maryland but across the entire country, reflects the changing public opinion towards the death penalty. We know that it is time to end capital punishment here in Arizona.
Let's make Arizona the next state to abolish the death penalty and bring an end to this unjust, ineffective, and expensive practice. Write your legislators—better yet, write letters to the editor of your local paper. Letters to the editor are read not only by the public but also by legislators.
