PFADP of North Carolina: More than 100 NC Businesses

--Call for End of the Death Penalty

PFADP Launches Grassroots Campaign for Repeal

More than 100 North Carolina businesses have passed resolutions calling on the State of North Carolina to repeal the death penalty.

People of Faith Against the Death Penalty has launched a campaign to gather thousands of repeal resolutions from congregations, businesses, community groups and even local governments.

From Hot Rod Installations in Warrenton to the Southside Seafood and Sandwich Shop in Lumberton, small businesses throughout North Carolina are calling on the state to repeal the death penalty and use the money saved to help murder victims' families and for crime prevention programs. The resolutions call for an immediate suspension of executions until the death penalty is repealed.

We've only just begun.

You can help spread this campaign. Here's what you can do:

1. Endorse "The Abolition Petition" here

2. Download a copy of the resolution from our website, here , and ask your local congregation, and businesses and community groups in your hometown to endorse it. The resolution we are using at the moment is a "pure" resolution involving moral opposition to the death penalty and few statistics. Over time we will post different versions of the resolution, including resolutions for different faith traditions. Got any suggestions or feedback? Tell us. We'd love to know your suggestions for improving the wording.

3. Join PFADP staff and volunteers on our semi-weekly "Resolution Roundups," which are day trips to gather resolutions and build new support for the abolition movement. Watch for announcements.

4. Patronize the businesses that have passed these resolutions and thank them for doing so.

5. Forward this message widely.

The following businesses have passed resolutions for repealing the death penalty. A full list can also be viewed on our website, here
