      EVENT DETAILS
      Abolish the Death Penalty: Vigil & Rally with death row exonerees

      Hosted by Death Penalty Alternatives for Arizona and Witness to Innocence
      Guest Speaker: Dale Baich, Federal Public Defender, Capital Habeas Unit

      Join exonerees from death rows across the country to call for abolition of the death penalty in Arizona during the annual gathering of Witness to Innocence (WTI). WTI is the only national organization composed of and led by exonerated death row survivors and their family members. The mission of WTI is to abolish the death penalty by empowering exonerated death row survivors and their loved ones to become effective leaders in the abolition movement. WTI actively challenges political leaders and the public to grapple with the reality of a fatally flawed criminal justice system that sends innocent people to death row. WTI also seeks ways to support death row survivors and their loved ones as they confront the challenges of life after exoneration.
