ECPM (Together Against the Death Penalty)ECPM
Founded in 2000, the association ECPM (Together Against the Death Penalty) fights for the universal abolition of capital punishment. ECPM takes various forms of action, from public awareness campaigns to international advocacy. The association created the World Coalition Against the Death Penalty, and supports regional and national coalitions. ECPM organised the first World Congress Against the Death Penalty in 2001. The event kicked off a global dynamic for actors of the abolition.

In partnership with

The World Coalition Against the Death Penalty WCADP
The World Coalition Against the Death Penalty, an alliance of more than 150 NGOs, bar associations, local authorities and unions, was created in Rome on 13 May 2002. It was founded as a result of the commitment made by the signatories of the Final Declaration of the 1st World Congress Against the Death Penalty organised by ECPM in Strasburg in June 2001.
