Capital punishment has been in the news quite a bit lately across the nation and especially here in Ohio. On May 1st, 2014 the Ohio Supreme Court Joint Task Force to Review the Administration of Ohio’s Death Penalty will publish its findings, including 56 recommendations designed to increase the fairness and accuracy of the death penalty in our state.

What are the recommendations, why do they matter and what does all of this have to do with you?

Ohioans to Stop Executions and local concerned organizations are hosting a series of Town Hall Forums featuring regular Ohioans who share their personal experiences with the issue. Bring your questions!
