“Will you strive for peace and justice among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being?” These words from the service for Holy Baptism in The Book of Common Prayer inspire us at Trinity. Volunteers are always needed. Please consider committing your time and talent to speak out for justice.
This group advocates for repeal of Ohio’s death penalty. Volunteers are needed to write letters and cards to death row inmates, help with petitions, participate in vigils and pray for inmates, and families of murder victims and those on death row. Volunteers coordinate with Ohioans to Stop Executions (OTSE) in Columbus and Intercommunity Justice and Peace Center (IJPC) in Cincinnati. Group members may also sponsor community forums on the death penalty. Contact: Bruce Freeman.
