Events, People, Politics

Atlanta, GA-- Religious and civil rights leaders from across the country will gather at a press conference at Atlanta’s Historic Ebenezer Baptist Church to launch a new campaign to heighten opposition to capital punishment from the religious community.

Nearly 200 people attending a related national conference at Emory University this week will be at the press conference.  The Kairos Conference: Discerning Justice & Taking Action on America’s Death Penalty, set for November 16 and 17 at Emory University, will galvanize new levels of religious involvement in the abolition movement, he said. The Ancient Greek word “kairos” means “a special moment.” 


Registration for the Kairos Conference: Discerning Justice & Taking Action on America’s Death Penalty is online at www.kairosconference.org. Information on the Sweet Honey in the Rock concert to benefit People of Faith Against the Death Penalty is available at www.SweetHoneyEbenezer.org.

People of Faith Against the Death Penalty is a national interfaith nonprofit organization founded in 1994 whose mission is to educate and mobilize faith communities to act to abolish the death penalty in the United States.
