In 1999, New Jerseyans for Alternatives to the Death Penalty (NJADP) was founded and in 2003, it became a program of NJAC. NJADP’s goal is to win public and political support for the elimination of execution as a form of criminal punishment in New Jersey. That goal was reached in December 2007 when New Jersey lawmakers approved a bill to abolish the death penalty and replace it with life in prison without parole. This measure made New Jersey the first state in over 40 years to outlaw capital punishment. There are now fourteen states without capital punishment.
