Executing Justice: California and the Death Penalty

A conversation with Ellen Kreitzberg and Henry Organ

Three prisoners on California’s death row, including Nobel Peace Prize nominee Stanley “Tookie” Williams, are scheduled to be executed in the next couple of months. Meanwhile, a bill calling for a moratorium on California’s death penalty awaits action in the legislature and local elected officials are calling for its passage.

Get an update on the state of the death penalty in California from two leading activists on this critical issue. Will 2006 be the year Californians can stop the machinery of death?

Professor Ellen Kreitzberg created and directs the Death Penalty College, a training program held each year at Santa Clara University Law School. This program brings in over 65 capital defense counsel from around the country. She also serves on the Death Penalty Seminar committee, which is responsible for an annual seminar for over 900 capital defenders each February.

Henry Organ is a grassroots activist with California People of Faith Against the Death Penalty, whose local efforts have led to resolutions in support of a moratorium by the Santa Clara and San Mateo County Boards of Supervisors as well as a number of city council resolutions.

The program will be broadcast and webcast live on Mid-Peninsula Community Media Cable Channel 27 and rebroadcast throughout December as part of the ongoing “Other Voices” television series produced by Peninsula Peace and Justice Center.

Free; sponsored by PPJC.
