October 10th is the 20th World Day Against the Death Penalty and this year’s theme is “Death Penalty: a road paved with torture.” As World Day falls on Indigenous People’s Day, we are combining both days for our virtual panel featuring Indigenous voices of experience discussing the death penalty, LWOP and extreme sentencing in the United States.

Please join Amnesty International’s San Francisco chapter, AIUSA Group 30 for a panel discussion with three inspiring speakers: including our dear friend Susan Bustamante (released from LWOP after 31 years, now works with California Coalition for Women Prisoners and Drop LWOP), Lenny Foster (Leonard Peltier’s spiritual advisor and advisor to over 2,000 incarcerated men over the past 37 years) and Curtis Briggs, a lawyer representing Doug “Chief” Stankewitz, (San Quentin’s longest serving death row inhabitant, with a compelling case of innocence, and in theory now serving LWOP).
