Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said "The arc of the universe is long, but it bends toward justice." Never has that statement resonated with us as it does now, facing the 20th Anniversary of Death Penalty Focus. For two decades, the staff and board of this organization have worked to educate the public about the brutality and injustice inherent in the death penalty system, and to mobilize people to fight for human rights.
With an effective stay on executions nationwide while the Supreme Court reviews the legality of lethal injection, it's more clear now than ever that we are winning and we stand in awe of our allies in this fight. On this website, you can find information about several exciting new projects we've launched to carry us toward our inevitable goal of abolition, including California Crime Victims for Alternatives to the Death Penalty (www.californiacrimevictims.org), Law Enforcement Outreach, and the Clergy Mobilization Project.
Thank you for your support throughout the years!

I know for a fact that the death penalty should never be on the table for minors who are mentally incapicated.
