Fast and Vigil to Abolish the Death Penalty
June 29 @ 12:01 am - July 2 @ 11:59 pm EDT
We are excited to announce that we will be continuing for our 29th year in 2022! Registration is now open at http://www.abolition.org/fastandvigil/, so please let us know if you are coming so we can keep you updated on the plans.
WHAT IS THE FAST AND VIGIL? For four days, death penalty abolitionists from around the country will gather at the steps of the Supreme Court to call for an end to capital punishment in the United States. It is an energizing grassroots week of training, advocacy, action, community and education. Tens of thousands of tourists and locals, from all over the U.S. and throughout the world, pass by our vigil and table, so the opportunity for dialogue and discussion at a real grass-roots level is invaluable to the movement.
Additionally, each evening we hear stories from murder victim family members, death row exonerees, death row families and leaders in the national abolition movement.
We hope you will consider joining the more than 75 anti-death penalty activists who come regularly from across the U.S. and Canada – from Florida to California and everywhere inbetween – to join together for public education and outreach at the steps of the Supreme Court.
