Nebraskans for Alternatives to the Death Penalty was founded in 1981 after Governor Thone had vetoed a bill passed by Nebraska’s unicameral legislature that would have repealed the death penalty in Nebraska. Since its founding, it has been a politically active organization that has supported death penalty abolition efforts in the Nebraska legislature.

NADP currently has over 1800 contributing members and a mailing list of over 12,300 individuals who have indicated to NADP that they support death penalty abolition in Nebraska.

NADP provides speakers for educational talks and events, organizes testimony for legislative committee hearings, coordinates member education and involvement, and lobbies the Nebraska Legislature.
