Support Death Row Exonerees

Take Action


You can be part of the historic march towards abolition in the United States.
Here are some great resources and ideas on how you can be involved in the fight for a smarter and more humane criminal justice system in the United States:


  • Innocence is the most powerful and persuasive argument against the death penalty. Host an inspirational exonerated death row survivor speaker from Witness to Innocence at your college, place of worship, or community organization. Go here to learn more. Making a tax-deductible donation to our organization will also help us greatly to continue empowering the exonerated to end the death penalty.

  • Sign up to receive our e-newsletter featuring the latest news at WTI and photos of our exoneree members.                                                   

  • Support your state’s anti-death penalty organization by volunteering or becoming involved in state and local initiatives. Your state abolition website will have the latest news and action alerts on death penalty issues in your area, and the steps you can take to become involved.

  • Amnesty International USA’s Abolish the Death Penalty Campaign has a great “Get Involved” section where you can take action on a variety of cases they are working on.

  • Equal Justice USA has handy organizing tools for individuals wishing to write legislators and how to send a letter to the editor, in addition to other great resources. ejusa.org

  • If you are the relative of a murder or execution victim or a supporter of victims' rights who wants to get involved in the abolition movement, there are two great groups to check out Murder Victims' Families for Reconciliation.
