DPF is dedicated to the abolition of the death penalty. We believe that the death penalty is an ineffective and inappropriate response to the serious problem of violent crime. To further our mission we disseminate information through a variety of public education and media campaigns, our newsletter, and the work of our statewide chapters. We also provide research and resources on the death penalty and its alternatives to lawyers, educators, and the general public. We have over 80,000 supporters nationwide.
