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 third 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.
Ron McAndrew works to stop executions and end the death penalty, and he does so from the unusual platform of having carried out executions in the name of the people of Florida. In this brief film, Ron shares how his role as an executioner shaped his life and turned him from a staunch advocate for executions to a leading voice against the death penalty. Ron is active in the Catholic Church and serves on the Advisory Committee for Death Penalty Action. He is also active with Floridians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty. Ron no longer travels, but he may at times be available to share his powerful story virtually.
Support Ron and others through this GoFundMe page.
