The Human Impact of the Death Penalty

On September 21, 2011, Troy Davis was executed by the State of Georgia, despite a compelling case of innocence. Troy’s execution was protested by hundreds of thousands around the globe. How did one man capture the world’s imagination and become the iconic face for the campaign to end the death penalty?

Troy’s sister Kimberly Davis and I Am Troy Davis co-author Jen Marlowe will unpack Troy’s case, demonstrating how emblematic it is of our broken justice system. Davis and Marlowe will also discuss how Troy’s case continues to galvanize the fight to abolish the death penalty, looking also at the struggle here in Washington State, where Gov. Jay Inslee recently placed a moratorium on executions.
