National Catholic Pledge to End the Death Penalty

All Christians and people of good will are thus called today to fight not only for the abolition of the death penalty, whether legal or illegal, and in all its forms, but also in order to improve prison conditions, with respect for the human dignity of the people deprived of their freedom” – Pope Francis #Pledge4Mercy

 

Catholic Mobilizing Network  wants YOU to take action and ask for clemency for those scheduled to die by the death penalty. They have recently updated their website with more opportunities for advocacy. Be sure to take a look!
