Faith & the Death Penalty
November 10, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
On October 10, to mark the 19th World Day Against the Death Penalty, we are partnering with the NC Council of Churches to host a panel of voices with lived experience to discuss faith and the death penalty. Panelists include George Wilkerson, who is living on NC’s death row; Andre Smith, who teaches Buddhism to men in prison and lost his son to homicide; and Rev. Sharon Risher, who lost her mother and two cousins in the shooting at Mother Emmanuel AME church in Charleston. Jonathan Wilson Hartgrove, noted writer and leader in the Red Letter Christian movement and the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival, will moderate.
Don’t miss this unique opportunity to hear the voices of people most directly impacted by the death penalty, those on death row and those who have lost family members to murder. Please REGISTER HERE to attend.
