Walk to Stop Executions

October 4, 2015 - October 10, 2015

On Saturday October 10, the World Day Against the Death Penalty, abolitionists from Ohio and beyond will conclude a 7 day 83 mile walk from the Lucasville prison where death row inmates are executed to the Statehouse in Columbus calling for an end to capital punishment as proposed in two bills pending in the House and Senate. Please join us for a mile, a day, or the entire walk!

Join the final 2.5 mile leg departing from 1500 S. 4th St Columbus at 10 am, or attend the 12 noon rally at Trinity Episcopal Church, 125 E. Broad St. across from the Capitol.  Keynote speakers include Representative Dan Ramos, Ohio NAACP President Jocelyn Travis, David Singleton, Ohio Justice and Policy Center, Jeff Hood, Texas Coalition to Abolish the Death penalty, and two murder victim family members Sam Reese Sheppard, and OTSE President Melinda Dawson.
