This page contains materials to assist you and your imprisoned loved ones in your advocacy efforts to urge elected officials and others in positions of power to end life without parole sentences.  Below are links to sites with contact information for members of the legislatures of all states imposing LWOP (every state except Alaska). Also below is a document you can download containing contact information for staff and board members of most of the major death penalty abolitionist groups nationwide which advocate for life without parole as a "reasonable alternative" to traditional forms of execution, such as lethal injection. (Death penalty abolitionist groups which support LWOP are an important target of our educational and advocacy efforts.  In August 2013, The Other Death Penalty Project mailed copies of "Too Cruel, Not Unusual Enough" to all the individuals listed in this document.)  In addition, below is a document for download containing the names and contact information for policymakers nationwide to whom we also mailed copies of "Too Cruel, Not Unusual Enough."

 

Print out and mail these materials to your imprisoned loved ones, so they can be actively involved in the fight to abolish LWOP!

 

Soon, this site will contain sample advocacy letters for your use in contacting elected officials and death penalty abolitionist groups, as well as links to contact information for media outlets (newspapers op ed pages, other print media, radio and television) to help you to join with us to make the media aware LWOP is the death penalty and should be abolished immediately.
