Tell your Legislators: Now is the time to end Connecticut's death penalty!
Legislation that would end Connecticut's death penalty has passed through the State Senate 20 to 16 and Governor Malloy has already promised he will sign the bill if it gets to his desk - so all we need now is the House!
Email your House representatives today to tell that it's time for the death penalty to go. Connecticut's death penalty system is a colossal failure. It doesn't meet the needs of victims' families. It doesn't keep us any safer. It's a risky and unfair waste of taxpayer dollars.
At the same time, you can thank your Senator if he or she voted for repeal or express your disappointment if they did not.
Thousands of citizens have already called on their lawmakers to support repeal. Now we need your help to take it the rest of the way there.
