Ohioans to Stop Executions
Gathering at the Statehouse @ Ohio Statehouse | Columbus | Ohio | United States

Executions are scheduled to resume in Ohio on February 15, 2017. While legal challenges may further delay execution dates, Ohioans to Stop Executions is gathering in the Atrium at the Statehouse to show our opposition to the resumption and continued use of the death penalty in Ohio.

This short program will feature updates from OTSE and partners on the current state of the death penalty in Ohio, perspectives from victims’ family members, and brief prayers and remarks from representatives of several faith groups.

Following the program, participants are asked to join us in meeting with key legislators in the Ohio House and Senate to discuss death penalty legislation anticipated in 2017.
