NCADP Statement Endorsing the Families Belong Together Protests.

Since our inception, National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty (NCADP) has stood for universal fairness and basic decency in the way we treat our fellow human beings. The detention and incarceration of children, including infants, forcibly or by deception separated from their families’ runs counter to the bedrock principle of human decency and fairness that is at the heart of our opposition to capital punishment. Although the President signed an executive order conceding his policy of family separation was misguided and abusive,  it still fails to protect children by allowing families to be separated when deemed appropriate or necessary and does nothing to reunite families already separated. As people collectively gather to call for an end to the effects of the Trump administration's family separation policy, NCADP stands in solidarity and support of the #FamiliesBelongTogether protests scheduled nationwide for Saturday, June 30th. NCADP's leadership, board of directors and affiliates look forward to joining this mass mobilization and taking a stand for the fair, humane and compassionate treatment for all people.
