Become a member

You want to

  • support the work for human rights?
  • help save human lives?
  • contribute to the abolishment of the internationally outlawed punishment?
  • give hope back to people living in inhuman conditions?  

Are you are looking for

  • combatants?
  • a way of involving yourself?
  • The opportunity of comparing ideas?

When the answer to one or more of the mentioned questions is „yes“ then you should come to us. As an active or as background member of the GCADP you can perform an active roll in abolishing the death penalty worldwide.  

As an active member vou will be accepted into our inner circle in which

  • important decisions – as far as possible – will be made together
  • worldwide actions will be passed on
  • important activities will be planned
  • you can bring your own ideas
  • outstanding duties can be allocated to members who wish to fulfil them
  • members can swap ideas and offer assistance

and much more. Please be aware of the fact that usually we discuss our ideas and plans in German language.

As a passive member you also get access to all information, but you support the GCADP especially with your membership fee.

Or you can decide to support our work as a background-supporter. For only 4,17 € per month (reduced 2,08 €) you can make a valueable contribution to defeating the death penalty. Background-supporters aren't members.

Both members and background supporters receive, at irregular intervales, our internal newsletter, with the latest developments - in German language.  

The application form (in German language) can be found here. Please complete this and send it to: German Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty, c/o Susan Nowacki, Täubchenweg 67, D-04317 Leipzig, Germany. Or e-mail a scan of your signed application form to sekretariat[at]initiative-gegen-die-todesstrafe.de. Or send it via fax to +49 7930 9940729.

If you have any further questions about the membership send us an email.

Do you know your Rights?

Over and over again we can read about the 'Human Rights' in the media. But barely anybody knows what really belongs to these 'Human Rights' and what doesn’t.  

You’ll find the most important Human Rights tools here.  


We’re happy to answer to your questions concerning the death penalty.

We’ve already collected answers to the most common questions in our FAQs. In case you should not find the answer to your specific question here, we ask you to send us an e-mail.
