The Journey of Hope goes to Germany

There will be a German Journey of Hope tour with more than 30 events from April 28th until May 15th.

You'll find all the information about this tour at the tourhomepage (translates to: "Not in our names") but please understand that this tourhomepage is written in German.

Speakers in Germany will be Terri Steinberg, Ray Krone and Bill Pelke. Choosing one death row family member, one exonereee and one victim family member, the German organizer try to show the people over there all the aspects of the death penalty.

The tour itself is organized by the German Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty (Initiative gegen die Todesstrafe e.V.) but single events are being organized by many other organizations as well, so the tour is actually a co-operation of diffent groups working towards increasing human rights and by doing this tour together, the groups also want to express that these differnt organizations stand together in their fight againt the death penalty worldwide.
