RJI Podcast: Death Penalty & Restorative Justice (June 2023)
RJI Podcast recorded on June 8, 2023
Today’s podcast is a national and global forum on the death penalty and restorative justice moderated by RJI President Lisa Rea. Our guests include Dr. Upneet Lalli (India), Reverend, Dr. Jack Sullivan Jr. (Ohio, U.S.), Professor David Love (Pennsylvania, U.S.), and Professor Barbara Janusz-Pohl (Poland). Each speaker serves on RJI’s Global Advisory Council. Listen to this robust discussion on the death penalty and its intersection with restorative justice principles which includes the reality of wrongful convictions, especially in death penalty cases.
RJI takes a strong position opposing the use of the death penalty globally. Instead, we support victims-driven restorative justice which victims of violent crime increasingly support around the globe. To get involved in the work of RJI contact us via our portal.
