The National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty’s (NCADP) Affiliates in North Carolina have asked for our assistance in reaching out to you to ask you take a few minutes today to help them pass the NC Racial Justice Act, a bill that would provide a remedy for death sentences that are proven to be the product of racial bias. The NC Senate will vote to concur on the Racial Justice Act tomorrow (Tuesday, July 28, 2009).
Please call and email the below Senators… or all three! Regardless of whether you support or oppose the death penalty-we can all agree that race should play no role in deciding who lives and who dies. Today this effort is about building the momentum and support with lots of calls. Please simply give your name and ask that they “vote to concur on RJA (S461) with no amendments or delays.”
