Speaking Out with Prophetic Voices

Welcome to South Carolina's Movement to Abolish the Death Penalty

​Welcome to the new website of the South Carolinians for Alterantives to the Death Penalty.  Our mission is to abolition the death penalty in the State of South Carolina.


South Carolinians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty (SCADP) was relaunched in June 2021 after a bill passed in the South Carolina state legislature which made it easier to carry out state-sponsored executions. Our sole purpose is to end the death penalty in South Carolina through broad community education, grassroots organizing, and strategic partnership.
