Dear OTSE Supporter,

You wanted a stronger voice to end executions in Ohio, and now you’ve got it. Because of you OTSE is poised to make the biggest anti-death penalty splash at the Statehouse that Ohio legislators have ever seen.

You can be there in-person, and you can help OTSE take its message to every legislator in Columbus and all across this state with your donation today. And once again, whether you support OTSE’s educational efforts or its lobbying efforts via the OTSE Action Fund (Check the box: Send My Contribution To The OTSE Action Fund!), I am pleased to let you know every dollar donated will be doubled by two anonymous OTSE members until we reach $10,000!

Please join us at the Statehouse on Tuesday where, in partnership with Witness to Innocence, you will help OTSE bring six of Ohio’s nine death row survivors face to face with legislators and the media. If you can’t come during the day, join us starting at 5pm for a special reception for the Ohio exonerees at OTSE’s office in Columbus!

With your voice and support, together we’ll deliver a very simple message: Fix it or end it.

As long as we have a death penalty we risk executing an innocent person. Millions of Ohioans agree that we should end it now. Because the current legislature is not ready to end capital punishment in our state, then it must implement the common sense reforms proposed by the Supreme Court Task Force on the Administration of Ohio's Death Penalty. These reform recommendations are designed to make the system more fair and accurate.

Next week your voice for ending executions gets louder. Be sure you are following OTSE on Twitter and Facebook for up-to-the-minute reports, photos and additional information.

Until next week,

Kevin Werner

Executive Director
