Fine Lines, Lubbock Fine Magazine

  • DPP in the Media
  • 26 Nov 2013

The work of the DPP was recognised in the latest issue of Fine Lines, Lubbock Fine Magazine.

As reported in Fine Lines, Lubbock Fine Magazine.

The Death Penalty Project was shortlisted for the Charity Awards 2013. 

The Death Penalty Project (DPP) was among the organisations listed for this year’s Charity Awards shortlist. DPP is a project that has helped hundreds of prisoners who faced execution to be removed from death row. The Charity Awards are one of the sector’s most prestigious schemes, and the 2013 winners were announced in June.

The DPP was shortlisted from hundreds of entries in the advice, support and advocacy category alongside just three other charities. For the last 20 years, this organisation has provided free legal advice and representation to prisoners under sentence of death around the world. In doing so, the DPP has instructed leading barristers and other experts on a pro bono basis to work on cases. It also provides training and education to doctors and lawyers invovled in capital cases and seeks to reform laws on the death penalty.

The Charity Awards are the highest profile event in the charity calendar. All 30 shortlisted charities this year were judged by an independent panel of sector leaders as having demonstrated outstanding best practice from which other organisations can learn.
