Call your State Senate to oppose a new death penalty

Long Island Chapter

!!ACTION ALERT!!

New Yorkers Against the Death Penalty

Our NY State Senators think because it's summer they can vote to bring back

the death penalty "secretly." 

We were right: Injustice knows no vacations.

NEXT WEEK, THEY WASTE MORE TIME AND TAX PAYER DOLLARS  IN CONVENING  TO VOTE ON THE REINSTATEMENT OF CAPITAL PUNISHMENT.

IN OPPOSITION TO THE MAJORITY OF NEW YORKERS WHO DEMAND LIFE WITHOUT PAROLE TO DEATH.

Recent developments in
New York include the exoneration of Douglas Warney, convicted of a
Rochester murder he did not commit.  Mr. Warney has a borderline IQ, is subject to delusions and his conviction was apparently based on a confession that was manipulated and coerced by investigators. He served 10 years before DNA evidence proved him innocent.  His case shows that
New York’s criminal justice system is not immune to the kinds of error that have led to wrongful convictions in other states.

There is no provision in the proposed reinstatement bills that would exclude people suffering with mental illness from execution. In
New York, as in other states, potentially mitigating evidence of mental illness has been kept from juries at the insistence of the defendants.

DON'T CLICK DELETE…..!TAKE ACTION!

Without YOU, do you think the abolitionist movement could survive?

 

If you have contacted your Senator before please do so again.  They obviously think you will just let them ignore your wishes.

        ONLY A FEW WORDS ARE NEEDED! TELL YOUR SENATOR  YOU DO NOT WANT THE DEATH PENALTY!!!

All State Senators, including our supporters need to be contacted. Phone calls/faxes/ e-mails save you a stamp.

**IF you are a leader in your community, your voice is most keenly needed! Let your Senator know "who you are" when you call!**
BUT ALL VOICES ARE CRUCIAL!!!

To identify and locate your State Senator, please visit http://capwiz.com/lwvny/state/main/?state=NY and scroll down to “My Elected Officials."  Please include your address in your contact with your State Senator; it is crucial to our grassroots efforts.

 

!!!!Thank you!!!

I'll send you word of any progress we make due to YOU.
