our mission...

    GFADP is working to end capital punishment in Georgia and around the world.  We are a strong, diverse, statewide, grassroots movement which:
    • opposes individual executions;
    • supports legislative initiatives aimed at reducing the application of the death penalty until it is ultimately abolished;
    • protects the humanity of individuals on death row;
    • educates our fellow Georgians about the death penalty;
    • provides concrete action steps for individuals and groups.
