Save the dates!

Want to get involved in the abolition movement but not sure where to begin? Here are some upcoming activities to consider:

June 29 through July 2nd: The 11th Annual Fast & Vigil convenes on the sidewalk in front of the U.S. Supreme Court. This Fast and Vigil marks the anniversaries of both the Supreme Court's 1972 Furman decision, which struck down existing death penalty statutes as arbitrary and capricious; and the 1976 Gregg decision, which approved newly rewritten state denalty statutes and allowed executions to resume. For more information, go here.

Oct. 14-17: "NCADP 2004," the annual conference of the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty. This year's conference will be held at Galludet University in Washington, D.C. For more information, go here.

Oct. 22-24: Amnesty International kicks off the 2004 National Weekend of Faith in Action on the Death Penalty. For more information and to register your support, go here.
