Yes on 62! The Justice that Works Initiative

Join the Campaign to End the Death Penalty in California.

  • Cost – Since 1978, California has spent more than $5 billion to execute 13 people — the death penalty costs 18 times more than life without parole and puts innocent lives at risk.
  • Crime – There is no evidence that execution is any more effective in reducing crime than imprisonment — life without parole would save California $150 million a year.
  • Closure – Endless legal appeals keep victims’ families in court for decades, delivering neither justice nor peace — families deserve restitution.

California’s Death penalty is Broken Beyond Repair. We’ll End It.
