There is still time to RSVP for the hearing at 8 AM tomorrow morning. We are grateful for the growing list of people who will be joining us, but we understand that work and distance are prohibitive for some. If you would like to attend, please email me atdanielle@abolishdeathpenalty.
For information on how to do this, please visit our website. You will find a template on how to write to your legislators, so you can simply adapt it to be a bit more general. For example:

(If you are uncomfortable leaving voicemails, it may be easier to write something out first that you can then read.) The emails and phone numbers of the Committee members are listed below:
