The National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty (NCADP) was founded in 1976 in response to the Supreme Court decision in Gregg v. Georgia that permitted executions to resume in the United States. Our mission: abolish the death penalty in the U.S. and support efforts to abolish the death penalty world wide.

Headquartered in Washington, DC, NCADP serves its network of over 100 state and national affiliates. NCADP provides them with technical assistance, training and strategic advice and assists in devising public policy campaigns to end, limit or repeal the death penalty, state by state. For advocates committed to ending the death penalty NCADP serves as a clearinghouse with contacts and information. NCADP produces reports, fact sheets and other public education materials for use in state campaigns. NCADP publishes Lifelines, Lifelines State and Execution Alert.

To support local efforts for policy change NCADP also mounts national campaigns on specific death penalty cases and issues.
