Around the country, people who will not impose the death penalty for moral or religious reasons, or because they are concerned about flaws in the death penalty system, are not allowed to sit on capital juries.
In the single instance where our government calls on us to make a moral determination on behalf of our community, the voices of American citizens are being excluded and silenced. Here, we speak out and say “We want to serve!”
I Want to Serve is a coalition of concerned citizens who oppose the government’s intrusion on our right to express our beliefs on capital juries. CMN is a proud co-sponsor of this effort.
Help put an end to the silencing of people who oppose executions on juries. Let I Want to Serve lift up your testimony.
