Organize “Community Conversations on the Death Penalty.” Local organizing committees have sprouted up throughout the state to organize respectful community conversations on the death penalty. They also have taken on themselves to reach out to new people to encourage a steady, thoughtful flow of letters and calls to senators. You don’t have to do it alone! Nebraskans for Alternatives to the Death Penalty can connect you with other concerned people in your area. One-on-one contact with people you know is very effective. Talk to your family members and canvas your workplace, neighborhood or dorm. Everywhere you go, ask people to write their state senator. (Hint: It helps to provide stationary, addresses and stamps right on the spot!) NADP would like to help. Contact Effie Caldarola (402.477.7787, effie@nadp.net) or Richard Hargesheimer (402.477.7596, rshargy@neb.rr.com).
