Effective Advocacy: How to Advocate for an End to the Death Penalty

All are welcome to join North Georgia United Methodists for an Advocacy training event on Sunday, May 19, from 2 to 3:30 pm at Embry Hills UMC in Atlanta.

Join Bishop Robin Dease, subject matter experts, legislators, and Cathy Harmon-Christian (ED, Georgians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty) as we learn how people of faith can make a positive difference in our state and community through legislative advocacy. 

There is no cost to attend, but please register so that we can prepare to welcome you. 


Pulling Back the Curtain

GFADP and Georgia Catholics Against the Death Penalty are proud to present Pulling Back the Curtain, a webinar series on the death penalty. Throughout this series, we will examine the facts and myths of the death penalty in light of the curtain of secrecy the state draws around this process.

Our first discussion will be on The Medicalization of Executions. With execution methods like lethal injection, and more recently the introduction of nitrogen gas, we run the risk of seeing executions as medical procedures. Dr. Joel Zivot, Associate Professor of Anesthesiology at Emory University School of Medicine will debunk this dangerous assumption, laying bare the violence these “humane” forms of execution do to the human body.

Join us on Tuesday, May 21, at 12:00 p.m. via Zoom for Pulling Back the Curtain: The Medicalization of Executions with Dr. Joel Zivot.
