About the event
The Palmetto Journey of Hope is a collaborative speaking tour between SCADP and Journey of Hope...From Violence to Healing. The Journey is an organization made up of murder victims family members, death row family members, death row survivors, and others affected by the use of the death penalty. These individuals share their stories with audiences to help them understand how the act of violence wrought by the death penalty does not bring the healing that victims need after trauma. Speakers from The Journey have learned that killing people who've killed other people is never the answer; it is love and compassion for all of humanity.
Today's event features a screening of the film "83 Days," which tells the story of George Stinney, Jr., the youngest person to be executed in US History. Afterwards, there will be a panel discussion featuring Raymond Patterson (a death row survivor) and Hillary Taylor (Executive Director of SCADP).
