This is a campaign for a cause, not a candidate. We’re a group of citizens committed to justice and good government in Nebraska. We’re proud of our state, and we believe keeping the death penalty in our past is part of making Nebraska a home for the future. If you agree, then please join us. There are many ways to be involved.
Fiscal Conservatives, faith leaders, and victims’ families want to move forward and replace the death penalty with smart alternatives that put public safety first.
The death penalty risks innocent lives, has no deterrent value, and leaves Nebraska taxpayers to pick up the tab for endless appeals.
Nebraskans across the political spectrum want to refocus on priorities like how to improve education, provide tax relief, and strengthen the economy.
We all expect justice to be blind. Otherwise it’s not justice at all. Yet geography, poverty, and race continue to determine who lives and who dies.
Police officers don’t believe the death penalty is an effective deterrent. Police chiefs ranked the death penalty last among effective ways to reduce violent crime.
When the death penalty was ended, we left in place the smart alternative of life without parole. This protects us from the most dangerous criminals at a fraction of the cost of the death penalty, and without the ever-present risk of executing an innocent person.
