#DeathPenaltyFail is a campaign to promote the facts, highlight the inefficiencies, and push for the repeal of the death penalty in the United States.

Over the last few years, executions have been on the decline in the U.S., and the death penalty system has been fraught with pragmatic, fiscal, and constitutional problems. 19 states have repealed it (plus the District of Columbia!), 4 have a moratorium in place, and 8 more haven’t carried out an execution in more than 10 years. This fall voters in California and Nebraska will go to the polls with the chance to end the death penalty in their states.

Whether you support the death penalty or not, there can be no doubt that it is riddled with problems. And when a system leads to the taking of a life, the stakes are simply too high for error.

We look to intensify the social conversation and increase the number of active death penalty repeal supporters.

Now is the time to think again about the death penalty.

Find #DeathPenaltyFail on Twitter and Facebook.
