Death Penalty Movie Screening

Bring your friends for a screening of


and a post-film discussion about the death penalty

The Story
When college students discover important evidence that proves the innocence of a man on death row, Illinois Governor George Ryan has to make one of the most difficult decisions of his life: ignore the disturbing flaws in the death penalty, or transform the entire capital punishment system. He has only a few months to decide. At stake are the lives of more than 170 people and Governor Ryan’s own career and long-held beliefs.

Find out what Governor Ryan decided to do and hear more about the death penalty in our own state.

The Event
Join us for dinner and a free screening of the movie “Deadline” to learn about the human and financial costs of capital punishment as we ask why our own governor is cutting millions of dollars from education to build a new death row.
