A History of Missourians to Abolish the Death Penalty
From MADP website:

A loosely structured statewide abolition coalition has been active in Missouri since at least 1987 when Missouri passed legislation to permit lethal injection and prepared its first execution since re-instating the death penalty in 1977. Then, MADP was an umbrella coalition comprised of regional death penalty groups in St. Louis and Kansas City, secular organizations, faith-based groups and individuals.

As we grew over the following decades, we realized that the structure of MADP was too loose to work effectively to achieve our goals. Over several months, we engaged in a process that shaped the separate organizations and individuals already engaged into a cohesive group. MADP became incorporated and received 501 (c) 3 not-for profit status in late 2005. We have approved three chapter groups and eleven affiliate groups to be members of MADP. We have a working board, a clear process for decision-making, and an active committee structure to participate in the work. We invite you to join us as we work for abolition.
