In an effort to take extra precautions against the spread of COVID-19, the #NoDeathPenaltyOH coalition is taking Lobby Day virtual. Rather than travel to the statehouse, we will meet with legislators over the course of the week via Zoom to voice our support of death penalty abolition.
On October 19th, let’s come together as a community to stand united against the death penalty. The coalition has planned programming and events alongside opportunities throughout the week to meet with legislators. Join us and register here.
Thank you to all who have taken the time to write to your legislator, submit a letter to the editor, make a phone call, attend an event and more. Those actions take us one step closer to abolition and this work would not be possible without community. We hope you are able to join us for Lobby Day*.
*Before attending virtual Lobby Day, we ask that participants attend these trainings:
Tuesday, October 5th
Tuesday, October 12th
