Our mission is to end Life Without Parole sentencing in California. Our goal is to afford relief to those currently serving this sentence, no matter the conviction, through legislative change, commutations, pardons, resentencing, and public awareness about the injustice of the LWOP sentence.

Life Without Parole –

Special Circumstances and the Other Death Penalty

What is LWOP?

The Drop LWOP Coalition works to end Life Without Parole sentencing in California. Our goal is to afford relief to those currently serving this sentence, no matter the conviction, through legislative change, commutations, pardons, and resentencing and public awareness about the injustice of the LWOP sentence.


Support SB 300

SB 300 will address the injustice of the felony murder
special circumstance law by allowing for a sentence
other than the death penalty or life in prison without
parole for a person who did not kill anyone, nor intend
for anyone to die.
