Maryland Death Penalty Repeal Update June 28, 2012

Hello abolitionists,

 Get ready for a TWITTERBOMB!!

 This Friday, June 29, is the day to Tweet or call Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley, to let him know that this year’s unfinished business in Annapolis should be his top priority in the coming year. Let’s flood his office that day — we’ll thank him for his past support of death penalty repeal and insist that he make it a top priority in the next legislative session. Use these sample tweets, or create your own:

@GovernorOMalley Today is the anniversary of Furman, let’s

abolish #Maryland’s #deathpenalty in 2013. #EndMdDP

 @GovernorOMalley Thanks to your leadership #Maryland is a

human rights leader. Let’s abolish the #deathpenalty in 2013


@GovernorOMalley: Be a national leader, repeal the

#deathpenalty in #Maryland! #EndMdDP

 If you do create your own tweet, please make sure to use the hashtag #EndMdDP

The call-in numbers for O’Malley’s office are: 410-974-3901 or 800-811-8336

 Whether you tweet, call or both, also be sure to sign our online petition to Governor O’Malley:
