Oct 18: Free virtual screening of The Penalty

MugshotJoin us for a free virtual screening of the documentary film, The Penalty, on Sunday, October 18th, at 1 pm.  We are excited to announce that Will Francome, director, and Laura Shacham, producer, will join us to introduce the film and conduct a Q&A afterward.  Register for the event here.  We will send Zoom info to all registrants prior to the screening.

The Penalty follows three people caught in the crosshairs of capital punishment and the political landscape that could decide their fate, while highlighting flaws in the US’s death penalty industry and illustrating some of the fundamental reasons Amnesty International opposes the death penalty in all cases, without exception.
