Iggy Talks: Criminal Sentencing Reform & Ending the Death Penalty
Jan 21, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
A Must-Attend Virtual Webinar: Criminal Sentencing Reform & Ending the Death Penalty Presented by Mike Valder, Attorney & Social Justice Advocate AND Dale A. Baich, Supervisor Capital Habeas Unit, Office of the Federal Public Defender for the District of Arizona
Pope Francis’ new encyclical, “Fratelli Tutti,” does something that some Catholics believed could not be done: It ratifies a change in church teaching. In this case, on the death penalty.
This discussion will consider that each individual in the criminal justice system deserves to be seen, heard, and treated with inherent worth and dignity, and worthy of an appropriate and compassionate response.
The Life and Dignity of the Human Person is one of the themes of Catholic Social Teaching. Our Call to Family, Community, and Participation, with particular concern for the common good, is another.
***There is no cost to attend the webinar.****
