“We are calling on you as citizens to join us in raising our voices for these executions not to proceed.” — Sr. Helen Prejean, CSJ
Federal executions may resume for the first time in more than 16 years starting December 9th. Death Penalty Action is working with the Terre Haute Death Penalty Resistance network to create an International Human Rights Day Death Penalty Convocation. That event will be on December 8th in advance of the anticipated execution on December 9th, 2016. Get the details, register, and learn about sponsorship opportunities here.
