Talking about life, death and social justice

The death penalty is one of the great moral issues facing our country, yet most people rarely think about it and very few of us take the time to delve deeply enough into this issue to be able to make an informed decision about it.

This website is my invitation to you to take that time, to learn, to explore and to reflect.

I hope you will accept my invitation.

And on May 5, please help my work by donating to my non-profit, the Ministry Against the Death Penalty, during the community online giving event, GiveNOLA Day. Your donations are crucial to our work. Thanks!
