Day of Action at the State Capital
Death Penalty Moratorium




Thursday, April 20, 2006
Join us in Jefferson City for a Rally for a

Moratorium on the Death Penalty
Free Buses, Reservation encouraged


The death penalty has not proven to be a effective deterrent to crime and it cost more to execute someone than to rehabilitate them. Notwithstanding, many people on death row have been found to be innocent through recent technology and some have been sentenced to die as a result of people corrupting the criminal justice process. As a concerned citizen it's your time to help bring an end to this injustice. Join us for the day and let your voices be heard.


Stand up and speak out! Tell lawmakers to support a moratorium on the death penalty.



FREE BUSES from St. Louis to Jefferson City. Sign up today!
