The People vs. The Death Penalty Film Series
Death Penalty Action, in conjunction with Red Letter Christians and The Wonder Brothers, has been working for over a year to fund and produce a documentary series about the people impacted by the death penalty and those fighting to abolish it. We are creating eight compelling mini-documentaries, each one focusing on the voices of experience. The first four episodes have been released and can be viewed here. The fourth video is shared below.
The next round of filming started on March 1 in Texas, so it is not too late to become a sponsor. To support this project, visit the website to learn more and how you can help with this crowd-funded effort.
EVENT OPPORTUNITY! You can schedule any of the people featured in these videos to come to your school, faith community or civic group by using this form.
Herman Lindsey leads Witness to Innocence (bio here), an important organization in the movement to stop executions and end the death penalty, from the unusual platform of having been wrongly convicted and sentenced to death. Herman spent three years on Florida’s death row for a crime he had nothing to do with. In this brief film, Herman shares the traumatic impacts on him and those like him, and their families, and what we must do to stop such from happening again.
Support Herman through his GoFundMe page.
