Friends,

 

Are you outraged by the fact that we've already had two executions this year? That those executions were of men with PTSD and Intellectual Disability? Do you want to make sure that Georgia's rigid law for proving intellectual disability is changed? 

 

Join us for Georgians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty's Lobby Day, on Tuesday, February 10, 2015!

 

There, we will talk to our legislators about the many problems with capital punishment in our state. Your participation is key because it's important that Georgia legislators know that the movement to end the death penalty is growing in this state and that it will continue to grow until this cruel and inhumane punishment is no longer used.

 

The lobby training will begin promptly at 9 am at Central Presbyterian Church.  The address is 201 Washington St SW, Atlanta, GA 30303. This is a great training to get the basics on the topics we will be addressing; tips on speaking with your legislators and the legislative processWe will then meet with legislators across the street at the Capitol from 10 am to 11:45 am We will conclude the day with a press conference at at 12 pm (Noon) in the Capitol Rotunda. Please join us for all or part of the day as you are able.

 

For more information and to RSVP please contact us at info@gfadp.org. Please make sure to RSVP so we can get an accurate count of how many people will be joining us.

Together, we can make a difference!

 

With hope,

Kathryn for GFADP
