New CCADP report is out!

CCATDP formed in 2013 to shatter the myth of universal conservative death penalty support. With your help, I believe that we have accomplished that goal. Grassroots conservatives and many well-known political thought leaders are now openly questioning capital punishment with great frequency.

A mere four years since our founding, we have proof that conservative lawmakers are also increasingly supporting death penalty repeal. Today at a press conference at the National Press Club in Washington D.C., we unveiled our report, “The Right Way,” which demonstrates this point.

Joined by current and former Republican death penalty sponsors, I spoke at the press event and highlighted our exciting findings. From the year 2000 to 2012, the annual number of Republican state lawmakers sponsoring death penalty repeal bills never rose above single digits. However, in 2013 (the year CCATDP launched), the number of Republican sponsors more than doubled to 20.

The numbers have stayed in the double digits ever since. In fact, in 2016, ten times as many Republicans sponsored repeal bills than in 2000.
