Gov. Martinez & Legislators: Don't create a new death penalty for New Mexico

To be delivered to The New Mexico State House, The New Mexico State Senate, and Governor Susana Martinez

Petition Statement

Don't take our criminal justice system backwards. Oppose a new death penalty for New Mexico.
There are currently 1,947 signatures. NEW goal - We need 2,000 signatures!

Petition Background

In 2009, New Mexico repealed the death penalty, replacing it with laws providing for new sentences for life in prison and restitution to the families of victims.

But today Governor Martinez is calling for a return to the death penalty--making the state the only one in the country calling for a new death penalty, while at least a half-dozen others are moving to repeal their own.

Send this message to Governor Martinez and legislators in the State Senate and State House to show your opposition to a return to this vengeful law.
