  • Alternatives

    We work to establish smart alternatives that abolish capital punishment in Colorado.

  • Innocence

    There have been 141 people that were tried, convicted and sentenced to death that have since been proven innocent in the United States. A wrongly convicted death sentence could happen in Colorado.

  • Fair and Equal

    Our criminal justice system should treat all people equally, regardless of where they live, how much money they make, or the color of their skin.

  • It’s Time!

    It’s time for Colorado to repeal the Death Penalty.

    It’s Time!


Colorado’s death penalty is a failed public policy that is beyond repair. The death penalty risks the lives of the innocent, exacts a huge toll on the families of murder victims, traumatizes the guards and wardens forced to perform executions in our names, is unfairly applied, and costs millions in taxpayer dollars. A coalition of Colorado citizens made up of civic leaders, clergy, law enforcement and victims’ families are working together to advocate for repeal of the death penalty. Coloradans know the time to end Colorado’s death penalty is now.


Help us spread the word and bring an end to the death penalty in Colorado! Donations to CADPF are tax-deductible.
