How we Decrease Death Row & Abolish the Death Penalty: A Conversation with the California Committee on Revision of the Penal Code

Watch the recap on-demand below

Special thanks to chair of the Committee Michael Romano, staff attorney Rick Owen, and consultant to the Committee Natasha Minsker for discussing how they arrived at the decision and the strategies for reaching that goal. And thank you to our cosponsors, who share our mission to make our criminal justice system more humane, less racist, and more just.

If what you heard during the webinar has inspired you to learn more about California’s broken death penalty system, we’ve put together a fact sheet on our website with a list of resources.

We hope you will join us for the rest of our webinar series. You can find a list of what’s coming up here.

Finally, if you’d like to support Death Penalty Focus in its efforts to continue shining a light on just how broken our death penalty system is and to support efforts to reduce death row, save lives and abolish the death penalty, please donate here.
