This film event is about Justice, injustice and the Oregon death penalty.

gif_law_justice_001-w2Join the League of Women Voters of Umpqua Valley and Oregonians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty (OADP) for the showing of the film, “In the Executioner’s Shadow”.

Friday, February 8th, 2019
6:30 p.m.
Roseburg Public Library Ford Room
1409 NE Diamond Lake Blvd, Roseburg, OR

This film casts a penetrating look at the consequences of the death penalty through three powerful stories – the rare perspective of a former state executioner who comes within days of executing an innocent person; a Boston Marathon bombing victim who struggles to decide what justice really means; and the parents of a murder victim who choose to fight for the life of their daughter’s killer. As the battle to overturn capital punishment comes to a head in the U.S., this provocative film challenges viewers to question their deepest beliefs about justice.

Following the 54-minute film, a discussion will follow. We want to know what you think.

Please attend.
