Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty

Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty is a network of political and social conservatives who question the alignment of capital punishment with conservative principles and values. We are a project of Equal Justice USA, a national organization working to transform the justice system by promoting responses to violence that break cycles of trauma.

The mounting evidence of waste, inaccuracy, and bias has shattered public confidence in the criminal justice system. Death sentences are at an all-time low, and public support for the death penalty has dropped in favor of life without parole. More and more of us are questioning the death penalty and realizing that it does not square with our conservative ideology.
