A Call to Action for Justice: Email Governor Scott to Suspend All Executions, Florida is Most "Mistake-Ridden in the Nation"

Phone: (850) 488-7146

Less than 24 hours after the execution of Oscar Bolin, Gov. Rick Scott has ordered the state killing of Mark Asay for March 17 at 6pm. 
Mike Lambrix is scheduled to be executed on February 11 at 6pm.
The U.S. Supreme Court is to rule sometime before June if Florida’s death sentencing scheme is unconstitutional. It is unconscionable that executions would be carried out while awaiting the high court’s decision. 
Florida’s death penalty program is the most mistake-ridden in the nation. Since executions resumed in the 1970’s, Florida has executed 92 people while at the same time 26 people were exonerated and released from Death Row. That’s a rate of more than one exoneration for every four executions. 
Contact Gov. Scott and ask him to suspend ALL executions.
Phone: (850) 488-7146

The statewide coalition to end executions needs your help now.  Please make the work possible by making a donation today.
