Support DPAA During the Season of Giving
The season of giving is officially here and Death Penalty Alternatives for Arizona hopes you'll keep us in mind.
We recently initiated a $150,000 fund drive to enable us to hire staff and grow from our all volunteer organization. We need to grow to keep us on the road to repeal. However, these are big plans for 2014 and we're going to need your help. That's why we want to raise $30,000 before the end of the year. We realize $1,000 per day is an ambitious goal, but we know how invested you are in ending the death penalty. With your help, we can make it happen.
There are many ways to help us reach $30,000:
- Donate safely and securely online right now. (DPAA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization)
- You can mail us a donation to our mailing addresses
- Know someone who might be interested? Share our home page with them and encourage them to get involved and follow us on Facebook and Twitter
Thank you so much,
Dan Peitzmeyer, President
Conservatives Opposing the Death Penalty
MSNBC commentator Lawrence O'Donnell discusses conservative opposition to the death penalty: "A group of conservatives have launched a group to try and get more Republicans to come out against capital punishment. Lawrence O’Donnell has more in his Rewrite."
The 2% Death Penalty
"Although death penalty cases come from a small number of counties, all state taxpayers share the high cost of pursuing the death penalty, and the costs of review by federal courts are drawn from taxpayers across the country." We encourage you to watch this video from the Death Penalty Information Center entitled "The 2% Death Penalty: How a Minority of Counties Produce Most Death Cases".
