Dialogue on the Death Penalty — February 12, 2013 at 6:30PM


The League of Women Voters of Umpqua Valley (LWV-UV) is joining with the First United Methodist Church in Roseburg to sponsor a Dialogue on the Death Penalty on Tuesday, Feb 12th at 6:30 pm at the Methodist Church. The featured speaker will be Ron Steiner, Director of Oregonians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty.

In the upcoming 77th Session of the Oregon Legislature, Representative Mitch Greenlick plans to submit HJR 1 which would refer to the voters a constitutional amendment to replace the death penalty in Oregon. This Dialogue on the Death Penalty is designed to educate Oregon voters about the basics of the issue and allow them to ask any questions they have, as well as to express their own opinions.

This event is free and open to the entire community. The Roseburg Methodist Church is located at 1771 W Harvard Ave and the event will be held in the Fellowship Hall at 6:30PM. For questions, contact Tina Arredondo at 541-637-0899.
