Call Speaker Ray Merrick Now!

Dear Friend,

In the first week of session, we saw Rep. Steven Becker and 16 other House Members introduce HB 2515, a bill to end the death penalty in Kansas. Last week, we saw those legislators, joined by Floyd Bledsoe and community leaders from across the state hold a press conference calling attention to HB 2515 and showing their support for ending the death penalty THIS YEAR!

 

This week it’s on us! We have to call Speaker Merrick’s office and strongly request he reassign HB 2515 to a committee that will let it be heard — specifically the Corrections and Juvenile Justice Committee. It is important that important public policy issues like the death penalty are fairly debated and discussed by the legislature. Without all of us reaching out and telling Speaker Merrick to do the right thing, we will not see repeal in 2016! Call him today! Call him tomorrow! Call him everyday until he let’s abolition get a fair hearing!

Thank you for Donating

Dear Friends,

I am writing to say thank you for giving so generously to KCADP on #GivingTuesday this year! We set a goal of $1,000 and we have exceeded it!

If you missed that opportunity to support KCADP, you still have time to make an impact by donating to our Annual Fund Drive.

I am sure you know that we are grateful to be working for repeal with you.  Make no doubt about it, your activism and financial support make a real difference!

What now as we wait for the next legislative session?  All I can tell you is to be on “stand by” and watch your email for important alerts about ways you can be involved as the legislature returns in January.

In the meantime, may this season of holidays bring you peace and joy~

Best always,

Mary
