Stop Federal Executions
The federal government has resumed federal executions for the first time in 17 years. As Pope Francis has made clear, the death penalty is inadmissible as an affront to the Gospel and the dignity of human life.
The Catholic bishops have expressed their opposition to the death penalty for decades, and have raised their voices against the death penalty several times since the new federal executions were announced.
Now it’s your turn: please join us in raising your voice against these executions.
