#NoDeathPenaltyOH is the official campaign to end Ohio’s death penalty. Since its reintroduction in 1981, the death penalty has proven to be an expensive, racist, arbitrary system that convicts innocent people. Ohio can keep our citizens safe and hold individuals accountable for their actions without the death penalty– in fact, it’s what we already do the vast majority of the time.
HB 183 and SB 103 are identical bills that would repeal Ohio’s death penalty. Both bills have strong bipartisan support, demonstrating how important repeal is to both sides of the aisle.
It’s time to move Ohio forward to join the 23 other states that have already abandoned the death penalty.
