LifeLines supports and befriends prisoners on Death Row
throughout the United States, through letter writing. It is the first
established organisation of its kind. LifeLines has gone from humble beginnings in 1988 in Cambridge to spread both nationally and
internationally, with members all over the world.
We are delighted to have the renowned human rights lawyer,
Clive Stafford-Smith O.B.E., as our patron.
holds conferences each year, in London, which are well-attended by
members and non-members alike. At each conference, we hear talks by
speakers with knowledge and expertise of the death penalty - past
speakers have included Sister Helen Prejean, Clive Stafford-Smith OBE
and David Dow. There is the chance to meet the co-ordinators of each
State and the opportunity to talk with like-minded people. More details
of our conferences can be found on the
Events page and our 30th Anniversary page. Please read our News page for reports of events and for details of a special screening in collaboration with Amicus.
