Last week, Ohio resumed executions when Mark Wiles was executed for the murder of Mark Klima.
Ohioans responded in an unprecedented way. Faith leaders voiced their opposition, newspapers wrote about clemency, the parole board’s arbitrary process was exposed, and the governor came under scrutiny for allowing the execution to go ahead.
Next week, Ohioans to Stop Executions and People of Faith Against the Death Penalty will launch a new initiative to engage Ohio faith communities to end the death penalty.
