Interfaith Action Against the Death Penalty: April 2023



From April 4-21, Amnesty International USA (AIUSA) is hosting an Interfaith Action Against the Death Penalty.

Faith-based groups are invited to join AIUSA in advocating to abolish the federal death penalty and commute the sentences of two men who are currently facing the unjust and inhumane practice of capital punishment: Billie Allen and Rocky Myers.

This is a unique opportunity to take a stand on a critical human rights issue that is cruel, irreversible, and has been proven ineffective in deterring crime. By joining forces, Amnesty activists and communities of faith can amplify our collective voices and make a real impact!
