Lobby Day Report, and more!

Once again, Ohioans to Stop Executions and our message was the buzz in the Statehouse. I say once again, because last year we made a big impact too!  But this year was different.

Death Penalty Lobby Day Results:

Visit the Death Penalty Lobby Day website to watch a high quality video of our program. You’ll hear from legislators, death row survivors, homicide survivors, death row family members, clergy, and see the presentations of the Terry J. Collins awards, as well as a special tribute video featuring Terry Collins. Please be sure to share within your networks.

Finally, I’ll note that we also made an impact on Wednesday at the meeting of the Joint Committee on Victim Services. OTSE Board Chair Melinda Elkins Dawson and Murder Victims’ Families for Reconciliation Executive Director Jack Sullivan Jr. testified. Read our press release, including their testimony and related documents on our website.

I want to thank everyone who participated last week, especially the co-conveners and their lobbyists and the OTSE volunteers, staff and board members. Together we’re making an impact to end executions in Ohio!
