The federal government, which has not executed anyone since 2003, recently announced that five inmates will be put to death in December. At the same time, Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner asked Pennsylvania’s highest court to declare capital punishment unconstitutional. We will delve into these recent developments and more with Marc Bookman, co-director of the Atlantic Center for Capital Representation, a non-profit based in Philadelphia that provides assistance to anyone facing the possibility of execution. Bookman will speak about short- and long-term trends involving the death penalty both locally and nationally.
