Catholics Against Capital Punishment

Catholics Against Capital Punishment was founded in 1992 to promote greater awareness of Catholic Church teachings that characterize capital punishment as unnecessary, inappropriate and unacceptable in today's world. It does this in the following ways:

* By disseminating news of Catholic-oriented anti-death penalty efforts through its newsletter, CACP News Notes, and this website.

* By communicating the Church's teachings on the issue to federal and state lawmakers, especially those who are Catholic, urging them to resist proposed legislation imposing or extending the use of the death penalty, and to work for repeal of such laws currently on the books.

* By encouraging members of the Catholic hierarchy, clergy and religious groups to speak out more forcefully against capital punishment.
