History was made today as SB 6052 to repeal the death penalty was moved out of committee with a “Do Pass” recommendation. This is the first in what we hope is a string of victories this year to get a repeal bill to the Governor’s desk for signing.

Thank you to everyone who has signed postcards, contacted their legislators, attended events and lobby days over the years to get us to this point.

A special thank you to Nancy Nelson whose dedication to this issue kept PJALS involved for over three decades and helped form the Washington Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty.
