do these guys have execution dates?

Hello all, I'm new here. I'm an adament opposer of the death penalty and am about to sign up to correspond w/ a pen pal on death row. The website states that those with posted profiles have an execution date, but when I searched for scheduled executions in the US, I did not see any of the people listed on this website. Don't get me wrong, that's actually great- but I'm trying to prioritize somewhat, and choose someone who is in the most imminent danger, as I am interested in advocacy and even legal help, if I can. Also, my husband is having a fit about the address thing. Assuming you live in the same state, or driving distance from your pen pal, is there a real possibility of one's home address getting to other inmates and becoming a target? Thanks all- so glad I found this :-)

As for the address thing, there are many ways to not give out your home address. Rent a PO Box, use the service Jmail or choose someone that's no where near your State. 
As you're interesting in Death Row inmates, there isn't any chance they will be able to turn up at your house, even if they manage to reduce their sentence to LWOP. As for other inmates getting your address off of someone and coming to get you, well they'd have to store it somewhere and wait to they get released, then have enough money to come to find your house, if it's not out of State and a violation of their parole. Plus DR inmates aren't out with the general population and usually housed by themselves so there's really a tiny tiny chance that someone would take your address and use it to target you. 
Good luck

Your husband can calm down. As I don't see ANY chance how a DR inmate might ever make you a target. They, as well as the LWOP inmates, will never get out (unless proven innocentby DNA stuff or anything like that).

Second: No, these guys on here usually do NOT have an execution date (yet). So, please, just do it if you're ready to be in for the long haul. If you want (can by profession) offer legal help, you'd just better pick anyone who stil has some appeals open.

Happy writing,

I'm totally fine with a lengthy time commitment-in fact, I hope for one, as this would mean that my pen pal would have many days of life ahead!  As for profession, well...I'm not sure how much help I would personally be (I'm an OBGYN, literally the opposite of death row if there is one!) but, I have a few med school classmates who were crazy/motivated enough to get an MD/JD. And, my dad and   best friend are lawyers. It's hard to say if any of this would be helpful, but who knows. I'm going into it with the primary goal of offering friendship and compassion, but capital punishment really makes my blood boil- always has- and so I know I'll also be trying to find ways to fight.
