Repeal Campaign Fundraiser & Film Screening 11/29

A fundraiser and screening of the documentary, NH Law Enforcement Confronts the Death Penalty, as we prepare for a 2019 legislative campaign. Register here.

The most significant obstacle to repealing the death penalty in New Hampshire continues to be the political notion that the death penalty is needed to protect law enforcement officers and properly prosecute homicide defendants.

However, a number of prominent voices from across the law enforcement spectrum in New Hampshire say otherwise.

In a recently released short documentary video, veterans of New Hampshire police, prosecution, corrections and the criminal justice system share their perspectives on why New Hampshire can live without the death penalty.

Please join us at the Monadnock Center for History and Culture on November 29 at 7 PM to watch the 25-minute film and learn about how citizens can become effective activists in ending this inhumane, costly and ultimately ineffective punishment.

The event will be hosted by local attorney L. Phillips Runyon III, former presiding Justice of the 8th Circuit Court. He will be joined by a number of individuals featured in the documentary for a discussion after the film showing.

This event is intended as a fundraiser for the NH Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty as they prepare for a repeal campaign during in 2019 legislative session. All donations are tax-deductible.

Refreshments will be served.

While there is no admission charge for this event, there are significant costs associated with pursuing a successful campaign to repeal the death penalty, and we hope those in attendance will be motivated by the presentation to give generously in support of this critically important initiative.

One-Minute Video/Photo Campaign

We are asking NHCADP members to participate with us in raising awareness of the death penalty issue in the lead-up to the 2019 legislative session, by creating very short, one-minute-or-less videos (or short Tweet with your photo — see below) that we can post on our YouTube account, website, and Twitter feed. Here’s an example of one that the Coalition’s own Renny Cushing just recorded for us: It’s Time for Repeal the Death Penalty.

Please be assured that we are not looking for professionally-edited videos. In fact, informal homegrown videos are preferable. And please do not let technical considerations or phobias deter you from making a short selfie video that succinctly states why New Hampshire can live without the death penalty. You can record a video very easily either on your mobile device, or on your computer if it has an integrated or attached webcam.

Please note that most smart phones these days will give you tools for uploading your video directly from your phone’s native camera/video application (YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, etc.) — simply send me the link to your preferred hosting site once you’v uploaded it. Click here for additional information on how to upload your video to YouTube (requires a free Gmail account) from a computer or mobile phone.

You can also send your video directly to me and I can post to NHCADP’s YouTube account. If you have Gmail, you can upload your video to your Google Drive account and share the link with me.  Alternatively, you can use this free online service through your computer’s browser: For either option, use this email as the recipient: (Note: please do not simply email your video directly unless it is less than 25 MB in size.)

Here’s information on how to record a video using a webcam on your computer:

If you’d rather tweet with text only, please limit your text to approximately 200 characters, and please send a photo of yourself if we do not have one. Then, tune into our twitter feed here: (This paragraph, not including this sentence, is already 184 characters, just enough for a brief message.)  
Or, really simple: just  send us your photo with about 200 characters of text for your written message, and we can post on social media directly. Email to:

Feel free to call us directly if you need support with any of this: 603-513-2266.

Thank you for your willingness to participate and spread the word that New Hampshire is ready to live without the death penalty.
