Greater Caribbean For Life (GCL) was formed in 2013 with the ultimate goal of achieving the permanent abolition of the death penalty in each and every country of the Greater Caribbean Region. Our aim is to support Caribbean activists and abolitionist organizations in the region to achieve our mission.
GCL is an independent, not-for-profit civil society organization incorporated under the laws of Puerto Rico which strives to create a culture of respect for the right to life and for the dignity of all human beings.
Our project runs from 2018 – 2021 and focuses on strengthening the anti-death penalty movement in Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean
Our project is a partnership with the Death Penalty Project (UK), The World Coalition Against The Death Penalty, University of the West Indies and the SVG Human Rights Association with Funding from the European Union
Our project aims to create a platform for death penalty reform in the target countries leading toward abolition through advocacy, educational awareness and campaigns across the region.
