A Faithful Conversation on the Abolishment of the Death Penalty

Thursday, June 19th
5pm – Gather at Capitol
7pm-9pm – Gather at University Baptist Church

The Texas Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty and the Center for Theological Activism present a discussion with Rev. Jeff Hood at the conclusion of his pilgrimage from Livingston to Austin.

“Through walking in prophetic imagination, Jesus changed the world,” Rev. Hood said. “On my pilgrimage from Livingston to Austin, I follow Jesus’ lead and with every step remind my fellow Texans that you cannot love your neighbor as your self and execute them.

“It is my hope to ignite the moral imagination of my fellow Texans so that we might all rise up together with one courageous voice and declare the death penalty to be no more.”

We will gather at the Texas State Capitol at 5pm where Rev. Hood will make a brief statement. Then, we will walk from the Capitol to UBC for the discussion. UBC is proud to host this event, and we invite you to join us for this important conversation.
