– November 15, 2013 –
Experts and advocates presented to more than 150 attendees at “Where Justice and Mercy Meet: Catholic Opposition to the Death penalty,” sponsored by CMN and Catholic University’s Institute for Policy Research & Catholic Studies, Saturday, November 9. Dozens more streamed online throughout the day – asking questions via Twitter and Facebook. Keynote addresses from author Sr. Helen Prejean and advocate Vicki Schieber highlighted the voice of those of death row and the voices of victims’ family members. Lively panel discussions highlighted the moral and theological reasons, as well as the practical reasons, for ending the death penalty. The filmed panel presentation will be posted on the IPR blog.
