The Declaration of Life is a statement that individuals may sign in which they ask that in the case that they are murdered, the person(s) convicted of this murder not be given the death penalty. Lexington Friends Meeting urges the monthly meetings in Ohio Valley Yearly Meeting to endorse the Declaration of Life.
