URGE YOUR CONGREGATION AND YOUR MINISTER TO GET INVOLVED.

Meet with your congregation's pastor, rabbi or leader. Ask him or her to preach about the death penalty, even if you are sure he or she would not want to do so. 

 

Encourage your congregation to become a member of PFADP and encourage the members of your congregation to support PFADP.

Encourage your congregation to become involved in For Whom the Bells Toll, a program of PFADP that encourages congregations to ring their bells (or take another action) on the day of an execution in the United States.

 

Encourage you congregation to become involved in Project Link, a program of PFADP that encourages individuals to form pen-pal relationships with people living on death row.

 

Encourage your congregation to pass a repeal resolution. If you would like assistance adapting a resolution, please contact us at 919-933-7567 or info (at) pfadp (dot) org. We would be happy to work with you to make it happen.

 

Encourage members of your congregation to endorse our repeal petition. If you would like hard copies of the petition, please contact Amanda Lattanzio at 919-933-7567 or amanda (at) pfadp (dot) org.


WRITE LETTERS TO THE EDITOR.

Letters should be brief (fewer than 250 words) and include your name, address, and telephone number.

 

Editors prefer e-mail letters if you have that option.


GET OTHERS INVOLVED.

Announce scheduled executions and the protests against them in your congregation's bulletin. Pass this alert along to anyone you know who would be willing to help.


ORGANIZE A PROTEST, PRAYER VIGIL OR SERVICE.

If you would like to organize a protest, an interfaith vigil or prayer service in your community before a scheduled execution, PFADP can assist you with liturgies and publicity. Contact info (at) pfadp (dot) org or (919) 933-7567.

 

PRAY.

Remember victims of murder and their families and those on death row in your and your congregation's prayers.
