Campaign to End the Death Penalty says
Register Now for the CEDP's 15th Annul Convention!
http://nodeathpenalty.org/events/fighting-death-penalty-and-mass-incarceration

November 14, 2015 in Austin, Texas at Huston Tillotson University, 900 Chicon St.

The death penalty abolition movement continues to make strides as support for the death penalty declines. Meanwhile, new movements against racist police murders and for criminal justice reform have emerged. The time is now to link our struggles together in the fight to end the New Jim Crow!

Our convention this year will feature panels and workshops that take on the system - from policing to death row. Our discussion will take up issues like police violence, abuse of prosecutorial discretion, harsh sentencing, execution methods, solitary confinement and prison conditions, and more. We’ll focus on specific cases and will feature the voices of family members and former and current prisoners as highlighted speakers including:

Sandra Reed - mother of Texas death row prisoner Rodney Reed
Mark Clements – Former Illinois juvenile life without parole prisoner and police torture victim
Delia Perez Meyer - Sister of Texas death row prisoner Louis Castro Perez
Liliana Segura - editor at The Intercept
Lily Hughes - National Director of the Campaign to End the Death Penalty

And many more!
