The Criminal Justice Studies Program will host a webinar entitled "Journey of Hope: Death Penalty Abolishment" 6:30-7:30 p.m. Tuesday, December 1, 2020. Family members of murder victims will share their personal stories and discuss the movement to abolish the death penalty, which was reinstated in 2019 by U.S. Attorney General William Barr. Since Barr's actions, the federal government has executed seven inmates. The first female in nearly 70 years, Lisa Montgomery, is scheduled for federal execution on Dec. 8 and two days later another death sentence will likely be carried out.

Panelist for this webinar, co-sponsored by the Fr. William J. Ferree Chair of Social Justice and The Human Rights Center, include: Bob Stoughton, retired Research Administrator for Montgomery County Human Services Planning and Development Department and the Fitz Center for Leadership in Community; Rev. Dr. Crystal Walker, Executive Director for Greater Dayton Christian Connections: George White, Co-Founder of Journey of Hope.
