National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty (NCADP) Biography

Position:
Con to the question "Should the Death Penalty Be Allowed?"
Reasoning:

“As the public comes to understand that the death penalty operates unfairly, harms the very people it purports to help and drains precious resources from solutions that prevent crime, hold people accountable and keep our communities safe, more will demand that policy makers support measures to narrow the scope and reach of the practice and ultimately repeal death penalty statutes.”
