Capital Punishment

Become a prophet. Change the world.

It is up to us to end capital punishment. Georgia is one of the few states left where it is still legal. End the injustice that takes away human dignity and rights.

  • it costs more money to execute somebody than it does to keep a person in prison for life
  • most people on death row are in the lower middle class or below because ti costs too much money to afford a good lawyer to defend them

It's not all about the money though,

  • 1/3 of our America's population still believes death penalty is the best punishment for murder
  • in 2015, Georgia executed a women for the first time since 1945

Kelly Gissander

Because of her execution in 2015, Kelly's two kids are without a mother. Imagine knowing when your mother is going to be executed, and having to live life counting down the days until then.

Dear ,

I am , and I am emailing you to let you know that I am against capital punishment. I think that we need legislation to make it illegal in Georgia. It is inhumane and demotes human dignity.

Thank you,
