A Special Request from DPIC

Today, along with our news update, we are making a special request of our readers. Please take a moment to consider the value of the information we provide, and make a donation to support DPIC’s work. By contributing, you help us expand our efforts to provide the most up-to-date information on capital punishment and produce innovative resources for journalists, educators, legal professionals, and others. News stories citing our information appear in the media on a daily basis and in every part of the country. Our website already reaches millions of visitors a year, and your contribution can help us inform even more people about the death penalty.

DPIC is constantly developing new resources and finding creative ways to reach the public with information and analysis on capital punishment. Last year, our Year End Report included infographics and a video, helping us reach new audiences online. Our timely materials on lethal injection allowed us to respond quickly after the botched execution of Clayton Lockett in April, resulting in hundreds of media outlets using our information. Our Innocence List, which tracks all death row exonerations, recently featured prominently in coverage of two exonerations in North Carolina. If you believe this work is important, please consider making a donation today. You can also choose to make a recurring, monthly donation by clicking “Make This Recurring” when you donate through PayPal. Thank you.

DPIC is a non-profit organization and donations are tax-deductible.

Donations can be made through PayPal or by sending a check to our office at:
