Journey of Hope in Monterey

Abe Bonowitz, Bill Pelke, and Juan Melendez are on a Journey of Hope, travelling around the country speaking out and educating people about the reality of capital punishment. Bill Pelke lost his grandmom to a brutal murder and initially sought her killer's execution, but he had an epiphany and now works against the death pewnalty. Juan Meledez spent 17 years, 8 months and a day on Florida's death row for a crime he did not commit. He was set free in January 2002. Juan has become an activist, working to end capital punishment. Abe Bonowitz, is with Citizens United Against the Death Penalty. The trio was in Monterey, CA on Valentine's Day for a conference of defense attorneys. This recording is the full, event, as recorded. Unfortunately after Bill Pelke's talk, my batteret was low, so I switched it, but Abe Bonowitz began talking before my recorder started up again. About two minutes are lost.
