Sign the petition:
Tell Attorney General William Barr, "No more executions."

After a 16-year moratorium, Attorney General William Barr has ordered the federal government to resume its use of the death penalty.

He's made this choice despite the fact that:

  • Reinstating the death penalty means innocent people may be executed.
  • The death penalty has always been racist in its application.
  • The death penalty does not lower the rate of capital crime.
  • There is mounting evidence that all methods of execution constitute cruel and unusual punishment, which is illegal.

The United States cannot allow our Department of Justice to execute federal inmates in our name.

Add your name to demand William Barr halt the federal government’s use of the death penalty.
