Action Forum to Stop HB 125
Sunday, April 30 – 3:00 to 5:00 pm
Grace United Methodist Church
Movement for a Culture of Peace (MCP) is teaming up with Delaware Citizens Against the Death Penalty (DCODP) and other groups to take action to defeat HB 125, which seeks to restore capital punishment in the First State. Delaware’s former death penalty statute was declared unconstitutional last year by the state supreme court.
We need to act now to stop HB 125, which is currently scheduled for a hearing in the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, May 3. After opening remarks from civil rights attorney Jeremy Collins and Kristin Froehlich, vice president of DCODP, we’ll get to work writing letters, sending postcards, making posters, and preparing to rally against capital punishment at Legislative Hall May 3. Persons interested in testifying against the bill may receive training and tips on how to be most effective.
Not in our names. Movement for a Culture of Peace opposes the death penalty. A culture of peace can never be achieved when the state puts persons to death in the name of its citizens.
For more information about the so-called Extreme Crimes Protection Act and why we need to lock the door on the death penalty in Delaware, visit the DCODP website. And join us at our Action Forum on April 30.
Please help us publicize by printing and distributing our poster and mentioning this meeting on social media. You will find various versions of this graphic on our Resources Page.
