To end the death penality

Today there is a letter to NY Times editor:

To the Editor:

Re “The Death Penalty Returns” (editorial, May 7):

I spend 20 hours a week working as a volunteer to end the death penalty. I write letters to the editor and op-ed articles, and I am the chairwoman of the San Francisco chapter of Death Penalty Focus, a grass-roots anti-death-penalty organization.

Here is what I am learning:

Most people never give any thought to the death penalty. Once you get them to think about it, they are more often against it.

If people want to help end state killing, they should start talking to everyone about it.
