Death Penalty

The death penalty is the ultimate cruel, inhumane and degrading punishment. Amnesty opposes the death penalty in all cases without exception – regardless of who is accused, the nature or circumstances of the crime, guilt or innocence or method of execution. Learn more about Amnesty International USA’s work. Group 30 is focused on working to end the Death Penalty in California.
