Death Penalty is Dead Wrong

Death Penalty Awareness Week in Austin / February 25-29, 2008

This is an annual event with participation from CEDP chapters across the United States. The Austin CEDP will be organizing a week of activities including:

A People’s Tribunal Against the Death Penalty
Tuesday, February 26 at 12 p.m.
UT Campus, West Mall Steps
We will present strong evidence against the continued use of the death penalty. Our verdict: the death penalty is dead wrong!

Is the Death Penalty on the Way Out?
A CEDP Presentation
Wednesday, February 27 at 7 p.m.
At UT, NOA Room 1.116.

From the Supreme Court moratorium due to a case about lethal injection, high profile cases like that of Kenneth Foster, Jr. in Texas, to abolition of the death penalty in New Jersey, support for the death penalty continues to slowly decline. Join the CEDP for a presentation that will describe these recent developments, as well as look at the CEDP’s role in the struggle to end the death penalty.

Displays and tables on the West Mall Wednesday, Feb. 27 in the afternoon, and at Wheatsville Co-Op on Friday early evening.
