Day of HopeSave the date! We will be commemorating the most recent execution in Ohio (July 18, 2018) with demonstrations throughout the state, calling on elected officials to make it the last.
Screening: In the Executioner’s ShadowSave the date for a screening of this powerful film that “draws viewers into riveting personal stories: the rare perspective of a former state executioner who nearly executes an innocent person; a Boston Marathon bombing victim who struggles to decide what justice really means; and the parents of a murder victim who face abandoning their values or fighting for the life of their daughter’s killer.”
