From Delaware Repeal:
The last legislative session of 2014 ended this morning. Unfortunately, SB19 to repeal the death penalty in Delaware did not pass the General Assembly to become law.
Although we are disappointed by this outcome [SB19 not passing], we are inspired by our success this year in securing our vote count and laying the groundwork for ultimate repeal victory in 2015. As a first step, we will host 2 strategy meetings this summer in Wilmington on July 8th and August 7th from 8:30am – 10:30 am on each day. As an integral part of our coalition, we welcome your input and invite you to attend at least one of these meetings.
Also, it’s festival season again! That means the Delaware Repeal Project will be setting up tables across the state to recruit even more Delawareans to join us in our efforts to repeal the death penalty.Volunteering at these festivals and events is fun and it really makes a difference. We would love to have your help. To learn more about it and discuss the possibilities, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 302-729-3196.
