Hillary Taylor / Challenge the Death Penalty by Becoming a Death Row Penpal

Sat 3:00pm - 3:50pm

Venue: Methodist


Type of Experience: Speaking

Content Type: Death Penalty, Christian Spirituality, criminal justice reform, Bible, penpal

The death penalty is at an all-time low in the United States. Sadly, however, Christian theology is being used to prop it up, especially in the Bible Belt (which might as well be renamed “The Death Belt” because of all the executions that have taken place in it). In this talk, Hillary Taylor details her experience becoming a penpal to someone on death row, and how a combination of personal connection and deep Christian spirituality is helping her fight the death penalty in South Carolina (and can help you fight the death penalty where you live too)!
