The US houses the biggest prison population in the world and is one of only a few “industrialized” countries that continue to implement the death penalty. Houston ABC invites you to join in the larger conversation regarding death penalty abolition in the US as we present the Texas Death Penalty Abolition Movement (DPAM) and death row exoneree Ronald Keine. DPAM will present problems with the death penalty from both ethical and economic perspectives, while Ronald Keine will discuss his experiences as an innocent man on Death Row. Ronald Keine will also discuss the effects of his imprisonment on his family, friends, and community.
