TCASK Presents at Amnesty International Conference


TCASK was represented at the Amnesty International Southern Regional Conference held in Memphis, TN, October 31-November 2. On Saturday afternoon Stacy and Katie co-presented a Death Penalty 101 seminar with Brian Evans of the Amnesty International USA Death Penalty Campaign. The presentation covered myths and facts about the death penalty, the moral arguments concerning the issue, and the death penalty as a human rights issue.

Katie led a role-play which encouraged the participants to use the facts learned during the seminar and apply them to mock conversations that may occur between people who stand on both ends of the death penalty spectrum.

Amnesty’s Death Penalty campaign works to educate the public about the human rights issues concerning the death penalty. If you would like to look further into the work of this group, visit their website: http://www.amnestyusa.org/death-penalty
