  1. Hello! My name is Chris Hitz-Bradley and I’m president of the Indiana Information Center on the Abolition of Capital Punishment. I heard that a death row exoneree is speaking at DePauw next Wednesday, April 15th, and would like to know more info about where he’s speaking and who’s sponsoring his visit. Will someone please send me this information at exparrot@sbcglobal.net? Thank you!
