A diverse partnership of legislators, individuals, faith-based organizations, civil liberties groups and good government advocates have launched a campaign to end the death penalty in Wyoming in 2021, and we want you to join us.
Individuals and organizations across Wyoming support the repeal of the death penalty for a variety of reasons. We are inviting you to add yours to the list. After signing, please share with your friends, family, and community to expand the support for repeal in our great state.
By signing up, you are agreeing to receive messages from our partners, Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty. In addition, if you are endorsing as an organization, you will be invited to participate in partner strategy sessions and have your logo posted on the website.
A few reasons others support the repeal of the death penalty in our state:
1. A system run by human beings is fallible. Across the country people have been wrongfully convicted and sentenced to death because of faulty forensics, incorrect witness identification and false confessions.
2. The death penalty process adds additional harm to victim family members. It takes decades to examine the cases and many are overturned. Family members are subject to years of media attention with no end in sight.
3. The state of Wyoming spends almost a million dollars a year on just the cost of providing defense for death cases. This does not take into account the extra costs incurred by prosecutors and the court system to handle complex capital cases.
