The Californians for Death Penalty Reform & Savings campaign will submit 585,000 signatures across the state’s 58 counties on Thursday to qualify the initiative for the November ballot. This initiative will save taxpayers millions of dollars per year, assure due process protections for those sentenced to death and promote justice for murdered victims and their families.

Press conferences were held today across the state where local law enforcement, District Attorneys, victim advocates, and community leaders will gather to educate the community on the facts and effects of this initiative.
