2016 Nebraska July 15-24

Stephen Griffith, the Executive Director of Nebraskans for Alternatives to the Death Penalty, has invited the Journey of Hope to share our message of “Love and Compassion for all of humanity” on an educational speaking tour across their state. We will be urging Nebraskans to RETAIN the Unicameral’s bi-partisan vote to end the death penalty in Nebraska.

Joining the Journey of Hope…from Violence to Healing and Nebraskans for Alternatives to the Death Penalty in planning and implementing this event are five additional partners:

  • RETAIN a Just Nebraska, which coordinates the local campaign to retain the legislature’s vote
  • Catholic Mobilizing Network, which works to educate and mobilize Catholics and people of faith to end the death penalty
  • Witness to Innocence, which empowers exonerated death row survivors to be powerful and effective in the struggle to end the death penalty
  • Amnesty International USA, which works to fight injustices like the death penalty and to promote human rights.
  • Equal Justice USA, which was the lead National Partner in the legislative repeal, is now providing staff to the retain A Just Nebraska Campaign.

These partners will work with the Journey of Hope and NADP to carry out an extensive and impactful speaking tour that will show thousands of Nebraskans that the death penalty is a risky, expensive, biased, and unnecessary policy that this state is better off without.

Love and compassion for all of humanity

Please consider investing in the precious seed we will be sowing in Nebraska. Your prayers and gifts are greatly appreciated-
