10 Years Death Penalty-Free!

On December 17, 2007, New Jersey became the first state to legislatively repeal the death penalty since 1964. Death Penalty Action Co-Director Abe Bonowitz, who served as Field Manager for that campaign, was there to capture the moment.

Get the Commemorative Poster

A poster celebrating this historic moment for our movement was created. Fewer than 50 remain. Support Death Penalty Action’s work to help finish the job. While supplies last, Death Penalty Action will send you one or more with your investment of $36 or more per poster (includes shipping within the United States).

With your investment of $1000 or more, we’ll send you this beautifully framed poster, which has lived on the wall at Abe’s house for ten years. Only one available – act now!

Make your donation of at least $36 HERE to support Death Penalty Action and get your poster.
