"Evangelicals believe that all people are valuable, that no person is more or less valuable than another,” said Sam Heath, manager of the EJUSA Evangelical Network and host of the November 10 event. “The death penalty in Ohio is fraught with racial bias. The death penalty in Ohio sends the message that people of color are valued less. We reject that because people deserve more dignity than that. Ohio's death penalty must end. This event's conversation is a part of that."

The death penalty conversation will take place via Zoom. To register, go to this link:
