Innocence and the Push for Abolishing Ohio’s Death Penalty
May 26 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Ohio’s death penalty is broken. In fact, 11 innocent people have been sentenced to death in our state. The good news? SB 103 and HB 183 would abolish Ohio’s death penalty and would prevent putting any more innocent lives at risk.
Join the Intercommunity Community Justice and Peace Center and the Ohio Innocence Project as we welcome Derrick Jamison, a Cincinnati native who spent 20 years on death row for a crime he didn’t commit. Senator Cecil Thomas (D-9) and Representative Jean Schmidt (R-65) will join this virtual panel to explain why the time is now to repeal the death penalty. We hope you’ll join us on Wednesday, May 26 at 7 pm.
