ABOLISH THE DEATH PENALTY IN MISSOURI

Missourians to Abolish the Death Penalty (MADP) is a statewide organization working to repeal the death penalty in Missouri by educating citizens and legislators regarding the costs and consequences of capital punishment. We seek to empower murder victim family members, exonerees, communities, racial justice advocates, various faith and conscience traditions, as well as individuals, to collaborate in creating new opportunities for abolition. With coalition partners, we address root causes of capital punishment by soliciting direct advocacy to oppose individual executions and the systemic conditions which permit them. Through alerts to our members, media placements, and educational events, we work to stop executions and to make lasting change to the criminal legal system.
