HPJC Joins Others in Pushing for a Christmas Truce in Ukraine

HPJC is signing on to a statement proposed by Fellowship of Reconciliation-USA, CODEPINK, and the National Council of Elders. It calls for a Christmas Truce in the Ukraine war. The hope is this might “pave the way for negotiations to reach a lasting security agreement to end the bloodshed”, as Code Pink puts it.

Supreme Court paused one execution. Now U.S. should abolish the death penalty.

Evidence strongly suggests that the death penalty is still being applied in an arbitrary and capricious manner. Who does and does not get the death penalty depends not only on the crime, but also the economic status and race of the defendant and where the crime was committed. The death penalty should be abolished.
