The Journey of Hope… From Violence to Healing hosted a series of events over the weekend of October 11–13, 2019 to kick off it’s 2019 Journey in Ohio. Thye events were anchored around a conference entitled “Cast No Stones: Standing with Victims to End Executions in Ohio,” held on Saturday October 12, 2019 from 9am-4pm at First Community Church, North Campus.
The Journey of Hope… From Violence to Healing presented this conference in conjunction with World Day Against the Death Penalty. The Journey of Hope… From Violence to Healing is led by murder victims’ family members who share their experiences as a way to convey to the public that the death penalty has nothing to do with the healing that murder victims need and deserve.
