LOBBY THE LEGISLATURE

Delaware Citizens Opposed to the Death Penalty (DCODP) has worked tirelessly for years to stop state-sponsored killing. The next two weeks will decide whether and how Delaware will abolish this punishment in 2015.

DCODP is asking us to go to Dover twice in the next two weeks—for a “lobby day” this Wednesday to influence our state legislators, and again on May 13, the day of the hearing for SB40. Here’s the appeal from their website:

  • Join our lobby day on Wednesday, May 6 at Legislative Hall, 411 Legislative Ave, Dover DE 19901. Meet in the basement cafeteria at noon. We’ll have resources you can use to speak with your legislator.
  • Come to the SB 40 Committee Hearing on Wednesday, May 13 to show your support for repeal. The hearing is scheduled to begin at 11:00 a.m. and we’re asking supporters to meet us in the basement cafeteria at 10:00 a.m. so that we can fill the seats in the hall and the balcony. There will be time for everyone who would like to testify to do so. If you would like to speak at the hearing, please email rachel@derepeal.org.

CARPOOL TO DOVER ON WEDS. MAY 6

We’re organizing a carpool for this Wednesday, May 6. We’ll leave First Unitarian Church at 10:30 a.m. and return about 3:00 p.m. If you would like to go with other Unitarian Universalists to support repeal, register below. Don’t forget to click the SUBMIT button after filling out the form.
