I give to DPF because it is the very best hope for abolishing the death penalty in California. Ten years ago, abolishing the death penalty seemed like a nearly impossible task. Thanks to the work of DPF, it no longer seems so monumental. If anyone can make it happen, it is Death Penalty Focus. Dollars given to DPF are dollars well-spent!
