File a witness slip in oppostion of SB 2580 by Monday at 2pm. 

Seven years after ending a discredited death penalty system in Illinois, the state legislature is considering reinstating capital punishment here. File a witness slip to express your objection to returning to this very dark time in our state’s history. 

Illinois took a major step forward – passing legislation to end the use of capital punishment. That legislation was the end result of years of mounting evidence that the death penalty in Illinois was flawed, racially-biased and ineffective. The scene of an innocent person being released from death row – for a crime they did not commit – became common place. 

Ignoring this sad history, Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner used a recent amendatory veto to write this ineffective system back into law. 

File a witness slip to show your oppostion of Senate Bill 2580.
