IN LOVING MEMORY: Death Penalty Film Night and Discussion
March 23, 2006 Thursday 7:00pm
ANTS, Peck Room, Worcester Hall

Partakers, a faith-based non-profit organization committed to advancing restorative justice,

rehabilitation, and the healing transformation of prisoners and society, will be showing

*€*In Loving Memory,*€? a documentary by filmmaker Robert Todd. The film focuses on people

facing death who are incarcerated on death row in the many states that support the death

penalty. In this brutally honest and poignant film, inmates recount what they have gone

through and what they have made of their lives under the most difficult of circumstances.

Come to see the film, ask questions of the filmmaker, and to discuss this long-debated

issue.
