Catholic Mobilizing Network Launches National Pledge to End Death Penalty

The Catholic Mobilizing Network (CMN) has launched a new initiative, named the National Catholic Pledge to End the Death Penalty. “Due to growing public opposition to the death penalty and especially in the aftermath of last month executions in Arkansas, CMN has launched this pledge to amplify the Church’s work to end the death penalty,” proclaimed Karen Clifton, Executive Director of CMN.

Catholic Mobilizing Network maintains the pledge as a vitally important initiative that lifts up the value of all human life. The pledge is a way to lift up the call of the Catholic Church and Pope Francis in particular to end the use of the death penalty and promote a more restorative criminal justice system.

The pledge calls on Catholics to educate, advocate and pray to end the death penalty. More information about the pledge can be found here.
