Our Governor will soon have the opportunity to reject the use of the death penalty against mentally ill people. Cal Brown, a mentally ill death row inmate, will be executed on Sept 10, 2010 unless the Governor commutes his sentence to life in prison. The death penalty is an unfair and irrational punishment that does not deter violent crime. Sign our petition urging the Governor to commute this death sentence and support legislation in 2011 that will end the death penalty in Washington state.
