1997-05 Opposition to the Limiting of Post Conviction Habeas Corpus

Limitations on post conviction Habeas Corpus are making it impossible to get access to equal justice. We therefore urge members to educate themselves on the meaning of post conviction Habeas Corpus and become familiar with what efforts are being made at the national and local level to limit post conviction Habeas Corpus.

We further urge members to contact groups who are aligning with our position. These would include, but are not limited to the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty, State CURE Organization, Justice Fellowship, National Institute of Justice, and the ACLU.

We further urge members to share information within their community.

Finally, we urge members to contact their federal and state legislators by letter expressing their concern to the limiting of post conviction Habeas Corpus and urge them to join with US in opposing any efforts to further erode the right to post conviction Habeas Corpus.
