This month the United States passed a grim milestone – 1000 people executed since the death penalty was reinstated 30 years ago. Bryan Stevenson is executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative of Alabama. His organization has successfully overturned or reduced death sentences in more than 65 cases where people were unconstitutionally convicted or sentenced. He says the system is filled with error and with race and class bias.

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
