Meet Timothy

My name is Tim Lundy and I am the newest addition to the NADP team, as of this June. I am a Nebraska native who graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln this past May with a degree in English and Classical Languages. I have been interested in human rights issues since I was in high school, and I worked on a wide variety of issues as a student, through my involvement with Amnesty International and Nebraskans for Civic Reform. It was through Amnesty that I first became aware of the deep and numerous flaws with the death penalty in the United States and NADP’s work to replace Nebraska’s death penalty with life without parole. I’m very excited to be working as a field organizer for NADP

Resources for Students and Teachers

The new school year has arrived and students, teachers, and professors have more reason than ever to discuss the death penalty in the classroom. The Death Penalty Information Center provides a wealth of free resources for those interested in learning or teaching the facts about the death penalty. Their website offers free curriculum for college and high school classes, as well as a long list of ideas for student projects or essays on the death penalty, all of which are already in use by students and teachers throughout the United States and around the world. Find all of these resources here.

Help Make NADP's Silent Auction a Success

Every year, NADP raises money through a silent auction at our annual event. The money we raise directly funds our work traveling the state of Nebraska and educating people about the death penalty. In order to raise as much money as possible, we need you to help us out by donating items or helping to get things donated for the auction. What can I donate? Fill a gift basket with themed treats—books, CDs, spa treatments, food, etc. Are you a good cook? How about baking some cookies or pastries and auctioning those? Or, make dinner for six with a themed cuisine at your house. Pick up some gift cards to businesses in your area, or, better yet, get them donated! Do you have access to a time share
