    In November, the people of California will be voting on a ballot measure that could repeal the death penalty there. Since it won a place on the ballot, the SAFE Act has been a topic of discussion and important debate among criminal justice reform activists.

 The measure has the potential to take over 700 people off death row in one of the largest death penalty states - yet the "tough on crime" proposals at the heart of the SAFE Act are leading a growing number of activists to turn against it.

    That is why the CEDP is hosting a national conference call to debate the question of how abolitionists and other criminal justice activists approach the California initiative. This call is open to all and we hope you will join us!

    Also, over the next several months the Campaign to End the Death Penalty will be providing a forum about this debate on our website through a new blog titled "Examining the Califonia SAFE Act."

    This blog project aims to collect various news articles, editorials and especially prisoners writing about this initiative. We would love folks to send our way any articles or writings that you think will add to this discussion. Contact us at [email protected] or [email protected]
