NEEDED: ESA Member to Work with Pennsylvanians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty (PADP)

Founded in 1997, Pennsylvanians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty (PADP http://www.pa-abolitionists.org/) (previously known as Pennsylvania Abolitionists United Against the Death Penalty) has energized the movement to end capital punishment in the state. By mobilizing a powerful network of individuals and groups, they have implemented a comprehensive strategy designed to put a stop to all executions, death warrants and death penalty prosecutions in Pennsylvania. They are organizing an action-oriented citizens' movement which engages local and statewide power at every level and in every setting – executive, legislative, judicial, corporate, religious and community.

 

ESA has just joined this organization. They have a planning meeting on February 1. Is there a PA-based ESA member who would want to be our representative on this committee?  If so, please contact Ron Sider at rsider@eastern.edu as soon as possible.  Many thanks!
