NAACP's Gordon to push for moratorium

It's nice to hear strong words from NAACP president Bruce Gordon on the death penalty.
We are going to make our position and presence known in every state, every time a prisoner is set to be executed. We will call governors, we will lobby legislatures. I intend to mobilize the NAACP around this -- we feel strongly about it, and we're going to be stronger about keeping it front and center.

Now, much like the US Conference of Catholic Bishop's Campaign to End the Use of the Death Penalty, we'll have to wait and see if this trickles down to the state and local level.
