At a time of fiscal crisis, when there are more needs than dollars, we're calling on Sacramento to cut the death penalty. We would save $1 billion in five years without releasing a single prisoner or jeopardizing public safety—$1 billion that could be spent on education and vital social services for Californians.
We know that advocates and community members from across the state are fighting to ensure that the vital social services that make the safety net for California's most vulnerable populations aren't slashed. We're here with a small piece of the solution. Need to cut something? Cut this: the death penalty.
