The people on death row may be more isolated from the world than any other humans on earth. When we sentence them to death, we cast them out of the human family. We say their lives are no longer worth preserving, their stories no longer worth hearing.

But what if their stories could help us understand the roots of crime and the true meaning of justice? What if we were forced to see them as full human beings, with complex life stories, before we sent them to their deaths? What if we saw this death machine as a multiplier of pain and injustice, rather than an answer to it?

With your support, we’re telling the stories of people directly affected by capital punishment & letting new voices be heard. Together, we are turning the tide against the death penalty.

We couldn’t do this necessary work without you.
