NH Senate Passes Repeal 14-10!

Today, (March 15, 2018) the NH Senate Passed Death Penalty Repeal by a Vote of 14-10

The NH Senate today deliberated nearly one hour before passing Senate Bill 593 with a bipartisan vote of 14-10. Watch the full debate and vote on YouTube here.   Citizens for Criminal Justice Reform has long supported the repeal of the NH Death Penalty. We are pleased to announce that on March 15, 2018 the NH senate did just that. SINCE THE DEATH penalty was reinstated in the United States in 1973, for every 10 people who have been executed across the country, one person has been exonerated. A 10 percent wrongful conviction is unacceptable when we execute people. The bill now passes to the NH House and we encourage them to show the same bold courage as the Senate. Let your legislators know you support repealing the Death Penalty -


As an incarcerated individual there’s only so much I can do—so I lift up my pen, I lift up that phone, I lift up that brother next door and I lift up the veil that the Administration of the Department of Corruption is so vigorously holding in place.” (Jeffrey Davis)
