WTI death row exonerees are living proof that we send the innocent to die. Listen to and share their stories to raise awareness about the injustice of capital punishment.

stopping executions

WTI is unequivocally opposed to the death penalty. We work to save the life of each person on death row. Take action to stop upcoming executions and to fight for people currently on death row who may be innocent.
