Stop Federal Executions

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!


This summer, President Trump ordered U.S. Attorney General William Barr to set five federal execution dates, one of which has already been postponed. The remaining four execution dates are considered serious, and legal teams are still working to stop them.

The first round of executions are scheduled for December 9 and 13. The second round is set for January 13 and 15, 2020.

Over the last 56 years, there have only been three federal executions carried out, and the last one was in 2003. To resume federal executions once again is an affront to the progress this country has made in eliminating the death penalty state-by-state and bringing us in-line with international human rights standards. In light of this, we are currently directing our opposition to the federal death penalty to the U.S. Congress and President Trump.

Please sign this petition, which will convey your message to the President that we do not want federal executions to resume.
