The Campaign to End the Death Penalty

Invites you to. . .


Tuesday, December 16, 7:00PM

Yippie Museum Cafe
9 Bleecker Street, New York

(Take 6 to Bleecker, or B,D,F,V to Broadway-Lafayette)


This holiday season, the Campaign to End the Death Penalty is writing cards to those who are behind bars.

From Mumia Abu-Jamal — a political prisoner still held on Pennsylvania’ s Death Row after a quarter century — to Troy Davis — an innocent man fighting for his life on Georgia’s Death Row — to many right here in New York who are fighting to have their stories heard, we know that the prison system is riddled with injustice, and victimizes the poor and people of color. In the spirit of solidarity, join activists and former prisoners in bringing holiday greetings to those who need them most.

December 13th marks the 3rd anniversary of the execution of Stan Tookie Williams by the State of California. We will be commemorating this date with a short screening of Redemption: The Stan Tookie Williams Story.

There will be food, music, books for sale, raffles, and a call-in from a death row prisoner!


$7 suggested donation, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
(all money goes to continuing the work of the CEDP)
