As you know, the Secret Executions Bill (H.B. No. 663) would drastically decrease public oversight of the death penalty in Ohio, and in doing so, increase the chances of something going horribly wrong (you think our politicians would’ve learned their lesson in January…).
The Secret Executions Bill is being rushed through the lame duck session faster than even its sponsors anticipated. It is scheduled for amendments on Tuesday and a final vote in the House this Wednesday, November 19th! There is no time to lose. Ohioans to Stop Executions is mobilizing opposition to the bill, but you must act too!

Make your most generous donation possible to the OTSE Action Fund. Once the bill passes the House, we’ll have a short time to mobilize to stop it in the Senate before December 4th. Your immediate support today helps us do that.
No state has seen a bill with such sweeping attacks on public oversight of the death penalty. You can help keep it that way.
Yours in the struggle,
