EJUSA is proud to be sponsoring and organizing a exciting event at Northland Church, Florida’s largest evangelical congregation. Northland Pastor, Dr. Joel Hunter, will moderate a discussion about the death penalty with author and activist Shane Claiborne, Florida death row exoneree Herman Lindsay, and Darlene Farah, whose daughter, Shelby, was murdered.
After the success of their first, the EJUSA Associate Board is hosting another “Trivia Night for Justice”! Join them next Wednesday, November 16 in support of healing our broken justice system. They’ll be at the Waylon in Hell’s Kitchen and will also launch their end-of-year fundraising campaign. Hope you can make it!
To commemorate World Day Against the Death Penalty, YOU are invited to the world premiere of a new film about death row exonerees from the U.S, “The Gathering.” The Delegation of the European Union and the Embassy of France will host this “EU Rendez-Vous” on Monday, October 17 at the French Embassy in Washington, DC.

Although it is difficult to determine a precise number, it is estimated that approximately ten percent of the America’s 3000 Death Row inmates are veterans. This program will explore the pathology of the condemned veteran population. In particular, the mental health implications of military service and combat will be examined in in light of Supreme Court precedents such as Porter v. McCollum. Among the issues to be discussed will be the effects of Traumatic Brain Injury, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and military culture. The panel will also reflect upon what factors should be considered in determining the appropriate sentence for veterans convicted of capital crimes.
