Our vision

•    To create a network of committed individuals to organize, implement and support correspondence with as many death row prisoners as possible in every country which still has the death penalty.

•    We believe that every human being is worthy of respect and friendship, no matter what crimes they may have committed. We put this belief into action through our correspondence with death row prisoners.

•    Through changing people’s perception of prisoners on death row, we aim to speed up the total elimination of the death penalty as a vital step towards more compassionate justice systems worldwide.
