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.

This Sunday, July 18, 2021 marks three years since Ohio’s last execution. IJPC joins others across the state to mark Sunday as a Day of Hope, so that we may never see another execution again. As we reflect on life today, we remember the lives of the victims, those who have been executed, and the families of all who have been left behind.

We invite you to light a candle in your home at any time on July 18, and take a picture of it and either send it to allison@otse.org or post it on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with the #NoDeathPenaltyOH. You are invited to include a comment about why you have hope for a future in Ohio without the death penalty.
