Speakers: Barbara Becnel, advocate of Stanley Tookie Williams, and Billy Moore, former death row prisoner who spent over 16 years on
Georgia's death row and author of "I Shall Not Die".


Campaign to End the Death Penalty is sponsoring a national tour, "Witness
to an Execution," featuring the voices of those who have lost a loved one
to execution or faced the prospect of execution themselves. As the
national debate about lethal injection continues, this tour will expose
the barbarity of the death penalty. With these firsthand accounts and
experiences of executions, we aim to show that capital punishment is
"cruel and unusual" punishment. As witnesses to execution, the voices
featured in this tour will share their stories of loss, struggle, and hope
for an end to the death penalty.
