On this 19th World Day Against the Death Penalty, please join Georgia Catholics Against the Death Penalty and the Archdiocese of Atlanta for prayer and reflection on our Gospel call to promote mercy and justice.
Archbishop Hartmayer released a statement in support of House Bill 485.
In a bit of good news, a bipartisan group of Georgia House members have introduced House Bill 485 – a bill that would repeal the death penalty in Georgia.
You can read the details of the legislation here: https://www.legis.ga.gov/legislation/59757.
We have been in touch with the sponsors of the bill. Over the coming days we will be updating our website and social media and will be sharing more information about how we can work together to ensure this bill has a chance at a hearing.
Please stay tuned!
In the meantime, please follow us on Facebook or encourage others to sign up for our mailing list.
It will take a huge effort of committed Catholics to help make this law become a reality.
