This map offers a state-by-state view of the death penalty in the United States. As noted states highlighted in red currently have the death penalty, and are the states where we need your help in advocating for the repeal in your communities, at your parish and with your elected officials. Each state page features information on state organizations with whom you can get involved, a list of upcoming execution in that state, and news and events from around the state.
