We’re looking for individuals to write letters to the editors of their local newspapers in support of death penalty repeal. Letters to the editor can be very short – just 100 to 200 words (about three short paragraphs).
Visit our Resources page for facts and information you can incorporate into your letter. Topics you may wish to write about include:
The death penalty:
- Is morally wrong
- Is expensive
- Is racially biased
- Is reserved for the poor and applied unfairly
- Doesn’t provide closure or support for families of murder victims
- Conflicts with my religious beliefs
- Represents revenge, not justice
You’ll find below a list of Delaware’s newspapers with links to the online submission page or email address where you may send your letter. On the submission pages, you’ll just need to type or click and paste your letter into the appropriate area along with your contact information. Thank you for your help!
