A Journey of Hope in Alabama

A Journey of Hope in Alabama

Opportunities to raise awareness about the death penalty!

In January & February of 2012 JAM and Project Hope to Abolish the Death Penalty will join with Journey of Hope: From Violence to Healing to sponsor a series of speaking events around Alabama.  Journey of Hope is a group composed of people who have had a loved one murdered and yet speak out against the death penalty.  JAM (Justice & Mercy for All) is a small Christian community which works against the death penalty from a faith perspective. Project Hope to Abolish the Death Penalty is a death row founded and run organization and an affiliate of the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty. The speaking events will include people from Journey of Hope and members of JAM and Project Hope to Abolish the Death Penalty who can speak to the death penalty in Alabama.  There will also be written material available at each venue.

Currently speaking events are being planned in Birmingham, Cullman, Huntsville, Jacksonville, Mobile, Montgomery, Greene County, Auburn and Tuskegee. The speaking tour will lead up to the 2012 state legislative session and the introduction of the death penalty moratorium bills by Senator Hank Sanders and Representative Merika Coleman.

If you would like more information on these events and ESPECIALLY if you would like to help with planning or publicity, please call Shelley Douglass at 205 780 2020  or Tom Duley at 205 531 0257.
