Panel Discussion on Death Penalty—No Human Way to Kill—October 11 at YLS
A panel discussion on the death penalty will be streamed live to Yale Law Room 128 on Monday, October 11, from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. It is sponsored by the Orville H. Schell, Jr. Center for International Human Rights and the Yale Law School Capital Assistance Project, in conjunction with the Human Rights Centre at the University of Essex.
The discussion, “No Human Way to Kill,” will reveal thought provoking and personal insights from victims on all sides of the death penalty. It is originating from White Box Gallery in New York City and will be chaired by UK Artist and Essex Human Rights Centre Fellow Robert Priseman, whose haunting etchings of the different means to implement the death penalty inspired the No Human Way to Kill book.
Speakers include the Reverend Cathy Harrington, who negotiated commutation to a life sentence for her own daughter’s murderer; Renny Cushing, director of Murder Victims Families for Human Rights, whose father was murdered in 1988; Barbara Lewis, whose son has been on death row for the past 20 years; and a representative from Amnesty International.
