About Us

Project Hope to Abolish the Death Penalty is an Alabama death row prisoner founded and run organization. We were founded in 1989. Our mission is to work together with friends and other supporters to educate the public and to bring about the abolition of the death penalty in Alabama.

PHADP publishes a bifurcated newsletter 4 times a year, which is written and formatted on death row. We maintain a web site and an email group, which focus on Alabama related death penalty news, execution alerts etc. 

For the past 16 years we have been working on a moratorium initiative, which has taken us before city councils, county commissions, groups, churches. 850 entities in Alabama have signed on. We also reach out to families of murder victims and law enforcement to help us achieve our goal of a moratorium. We believe we can not do it without their generosity. 

Project Hope to Abolish the Death Penalty is a non-profit, 501(C)(3) tax exempt, non-denominational religious organization and is not organized for the private gain of any one individual. All donations to this organization are tax deductible.
