This November the Intercommunity Justice and Peace Center (IJPC) is thrilled to host local artists for the 2021 annual gathering, The Art of Justice: Creative Visions for Peace, at the Woodward Theater. In collaboration with SOS Art, IJPC will showcase local artists whose visual and performance pieces share a vision for peace that will inspire all those in Greater Cincinnati seeking a just society. In addition to featuring local artists, IJPC will share highlights from the last year and honor local residents for their work building peace in our community.

Due to COVID-19, the capacity of the event will be limited and all guests will be required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination. If you are not vaccinated or cannot attend in-person, virtual tickets are available for a livestreamed version of the event.

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*.

Join people of faith across Ohio to stand in solidarity for abolition of the death penalty. Recognizing the injustices in our criminal justice system, we are unwilling to participate in the cruel and inhumane practice of sentencing our fellow neighbors to death. We join together across religious traditions calling in one voice for the abolition of the death penalty. Our goal is to register 1 faith community from each of Ohio’s 88 counties.
