The Death Penalty is "Retreating"

NADP participates in an action packed training workshop!

Nebraskans for Alternatives to the Death Penalty was one of seven states invited to particpate in a recent national training retreat held in Connecticut. The event was sponsored by Equal Justice USA and was focused on bringing more stakeholders to the table in our campaign to end the death peanlty, no matter where they fall on the policital spectrum. Additionally, the retreat focused on reaching out to murder victims’ family memebers and individuals from the law enforcement community.

During the four day workshop we gained specific tools that will help us break down boundaries and make our movement more powerful than ever! After all, we all want a criminal justice system that helps victims heal, keeps the public safe, and uses public resources effectively.

You can read more about the full retreat experience here!

NADP would like to thank Shari Silberstien, Executive Director of EJUSA, our amazing “cruise director” Sarah Craft, and all of the amazing EJUSA staff for including Nebraska in this amazing experience.
