About Us

Believing that the death penalty is morally wrong and is an ineffective, unnecessary and discriminatory response to the problem of crime, we seek to abolish it by the development and maintenance of programs that will: educate the public about the death penalty; provide information and assistance to lawyers in capital cases and others interested in the issue; monitor legislation affecting this issue; and provide support for the men and women on death row as well as their families.

Founded in 1976, the Illinois Coalition Against the Death Penalty is a grassroots membership organization committed to educating the public about the flaws and injustices in the Illinois capital punishment system and promoting humane alternatives to the punitive death penalty system.
