Volunteers Needed to Halt Efforts to Reinstate Death Penalty

The following is a message from our friends at Nebraskans for Alternatives to the Death Penalty. The pro-capital punishment petition drive to reinstate the death penalty is in full swing. Volunteers are being sought to help get information out to possible petition signers. Nebraskans for Peace wants to help get the word out so we can mobilize our supporters to help in this important effort.

Nebraskans for Public Safety is excited to launch volunteer efforts across the state to educate people about the problems with the death penalty BEFORE they can sign the petition to bring to the ballot an effort to undo our repeal. NADP wants to do our best to help engage our wonderful supporters in this effort. Volunteers can help with things such as petition fraud monitoring and handing out educational materials where petitions gatherers are working. In particular, we really need help in Lincoln. The referendum group is pushing their people all over the city and we need to engage our Lincoln support as quickly as possible. Will you please consider volunteering? Our opposition is working hard, but we’ve got the best volunteers in this state! Let’s get out there and show Nebraskans that repeal of the death penalty was the best decision for our state. To sign up to volunteer, simply follow this link and complete the form. Nebraskans for Public Safety will then contact you to get you set up to volunteer.

And, in case you missed it, be sure to check out this article from the Lincoln Journal Star about the high cost of the death penalty and this article from the Omaha World Herald about how much money Governor Ricketts and his dad have contributed to the referendum campaign so far. We must continue educating Nebraskans that repeal was the best decision for our state. Thanks for your ongoing support!

Toward justice,
On behalf of all of NADP
