We, the undersigned, standing in solidarity with all concerned citizens, call on President Biden to:

  • Commute the sentences of those currently on federal and military death rows;
  • Deauthorize all pending federal capital trial cases;
  • Order the Federal Bureau of Prisons to demolish the federal execution chamber and the building in which it is housed at the Federal Correctional Institution at Terre Haute;
    • Consider replacing it with green space for use by inmates and prison staff;
  • Pledge to support and sign H.R. 262/S.B. 582, the Federal Death Penalty Prohibition Act, which abolishes federal and military death penalty laws, removes the possibility of death sentences, and mandates fair re-sentencing of those currently on federal and military death rows.

This will be an ongoing effort until President Biden fulfills his campaign promise to abolish the federal death penalty. The ask may be modified at times as appropriate. The list of endorsing organizations will be updated regularly. The first presentation of this list will occur in mid-November, 2022. All of the organizations signed on the it happens  will be included in the congressional "dear colleague" letter inviting Members of Congress to sign on, and in press materials disseminated the the letters are presented to the President. This list will continue to grow and be used by the members of congress and this ongoing campaign, as needed.
