Let your state senator know you support an end the death penalty in Nebraska. Write a brief, polite, thoughtful, heartfelt letter stating your support for repeal of the death penalty. Hand written letters are particularly effective. Make sure your point is clear. In a few lines, thank your senator for taking the death penalty seriously, and express your support for ending the death penalty in Nebraska. Senators are particularly influenced by their own constituents, people they personally know, other community leaders, and those they have something in common with (membership in the same church, civic club, occupation, etc.). Mention your connection if you have one.
