The Washington Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty and Witness to Innocencewill be co-hosting a friendraiser/fundraiser on December 9th! There are no tickets for this event. We’ll have some light snacks to share, and you can show your love to Ballard Beer Company for donating their space to us by purchasing some of their great local beers (non-alcoholic beverages available too!). We’ll of course “pass the hat” for the fundraising part of the evening, and all donations will be equally shared between the two non-profit organizations.
When: December 9th @ 7pm
Where: Ballard Beer Company (2050 NW Market St, Seattle, WA 98107)
Who: We will be joined by exoneree Nate Fields, who became the country’s 129th death row exoneree after serving 20 years – 11 of those on death row – for a crime he did not commit. He will share with us the story of his journey to exoneration.
We will also be joined by the Executive Director of Witness to Innocence, Magdaleno Rose-Avila, and the WCADP President, Stefanie Anderson. More speakers will be added in the coming weeks!
Bradford Loomis, a wonderful local musician, will be there to share his music with us. There’s a rumor going around that WCADP’s Stefanie Anderson may have a musical surprise up her sleeve, so don’t miss it!
We will be raffling off some very unique gift baskets, so we hope you’ll join us! (If you have a tax-deductible good or service you would like to contribute to our raffle, please email danielle@abolishdeathpenalty.
As we gear up for the next legislative session, this fundraiser will help set us on the right track to make sure our voices are heard. If you are unable to join us on the 9th, please consider making a contribution here. Every dollar counts!
