Carla Turner, Executive Director

Carla has been fighting for true justice, great outcomes and significant cost-savings for about 30 years through her work with children and families living in poverty, involved in the criminal system, and dealing with other complex challenges. Amnesty International was her door into death penalty abolition activism back during her high school days in Oklahoma and she’s been volunteering ever since. The death penalty is an issue that flies in the face of common sense, as we waste millions and millions of dollars and damage many innocent people – – wrongly convicted men & women, families of murder victims, victims of other crimes, families of the death row inmates, guards and wardens forced to kill. No more. Not in my name.
