Project Hope to Abolish the Death Penalty, Alabama's Death Row organization that spearheads the moratorium initiative in our state, would like to join with other voices around the nation in commending the panel of Alabama legal experts for the recently released study on the death penalty.
From our perspective, the call for a moratorium does not come as a surprise.
Still, the diligent expertise of this report makes it a powerful tool which resonates beyond the borders of Alabama and should hasten a moratorium in our state.
Recently, we had the privilege of speaking at the Alabama Women's State convention of the Alabama Missionary Baptist State Convention. Not only did attendees come out in support of a moratorium but, in talking to many ministers there, we received encouragement that we are on the right road. We are grateful to the panel of experts for giving us one more tool in the fight for legal fairness in our state.
