Dear friend,

We have the best members (and that includes you!).

Two of your fellow members of Ohioans to Stop Executions feel so strongly about the importance of our work that they stepped forward to match every donation received by OTSE up to $10,000! OTSE is very fortunate to have supporters who can help at that level, as it greatly increases the capacity of all us. It doubles your dollars! Think of it as a date with that special someone, and you’ve got a two-for-one coupon. Please donate today with what you might spend on a special dinner.

Your support cannot come at a better time for OTSE, because while we wait for foundation grants to be approved and delivered, we still have a lot of work to do! And we’re getting it done….

  • In the coming weeks, OTSE will be in action in Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Marietta, Springfield, Toledo, and elsewhere. Final details on some events are still in the works, so keep checking the calendar at Expect a special e-mail about events within 50 miles of your zip code. (You can also bring one of our speakers to your community. Just contact

Everything we do this fall sets the stage for legislative action to implement the Task Force recommendations to make Ohio’s death penalty applied more fairly and used less often. You will be hearing more about that soon.

But we need your generous help to continue our work into next year’s legislative session. And we need it today. Whether you can give, $5 or $5,000 – or anything in between, remember that your donation will be matched until we raise $10,000.

Please click here now to make your more generous donation and help OTSE continue top fight.

Thank You,

Kevin Werner

Executive Director

PS: I can’t emphasize this point enough, so I will say it again. Two of your fellow OTSE members have pledged to match the next $10,000 we receive in donations. That means every dollar you give to OTSE actually means $2 to our cause. Click here to double your dollars today!
