Utahns for Alternatives to the Death Penalty (UTADP) is a statewide coalition of both secular and religious organizations and concerned individuals dedicated to stopping executions in our state. We welcome you to join us in this goal. Recognizing that some organizations and individuals who have serious misgivings about the death penalty in Utah may not be ready to call for an end to capital punishment just yet, we also welcome those individuals and groups, secular and religious, who seek a moratorium on the death penalty and the establishment of a commission to study its many disturbing facets.
