Death Penalty Gathering in Washington, DC (online and in-person)
January 16 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Join Death Penalty Action, Red Letter Christians, the Abolitionist Action Committee and others as we gather for an event to build community and inspire each other for action on the death penalty. This event will be in-person in Washington, DC, and held the day before the direct action at the U.S. Supreme Court, which will mark the 45th anniversary of Gary Gilmore, who was the first U.S. prisoner executed in modern history (on Jan. 17, 1977).
The event will be held at the Lutheran Church of the Reformation in Washington, DC (212 East Capitol St NE, Washington, DC) at 6pm EST. You can also attend the livestream.
The following day (Jan 17th), the Abolitionist Action Committee will lead and coordinate direct action protests at the US Supreme Court and the United States Capitol and petition deliveries.
