On January 1, 2018, the 8th Amendment Project became a fiscally sponsored project of the Center for Death Penalty Litigation. The 8th Amendment Project coordinates the national campaign to end the death penalty. The campaign employs all available tools to achieve repeal and decrease the number of death sentences and executions. At the same time, it works to change public discourse about the death penalty in the United States and to encourage the U.S. Supreme Court to declare its use unconstitutional.
