Request a speaker.
One of the ways to engage more deeply in this campaign is to request a speaker to address your faith group, club, or even a gathering of close friends. These speakers have all been impacted by the death penalty and can speak personally to how painful enduring its injustice can be.
Examples of speakers include:
- the families of murder victims, like Jonathan Mann who lost his father to murder in 2017 and opposed the death penalty for his father’s murderer
- Ohio exonerees, who endured decades on death row before their innocence was discovered, like Kwame Ajamu who was sentenced to death for a crime he didn’t commit when he was only 17
- staff at Ohioans to Stop Executions who are experts on how you can get more involved and give you the latest legislative updates.
