HOC March Meeting

On March 10th we will again be at the awesome Secular Hub, with a pair of speakers from the ACLU on the topic of the Death Penalty.

The United States is the only advanced Western Democracy today that does not view capital punishment as a profound human rights violation and a frightening abuse of governmental power.  In 2011 the US was the only source of executions in the G-8 countries or in the western hemisphere, while the only countries who execute more people than we do are the human-rights powerhouses China, Iran, Saudi Arabie, and Iraq.

Bonnie Ruth and Fred Varani of the American Civil Liberties Union will speak on the topic: "How did we end up in this company?  A history of the death penalty in the United States and Colorado."

Venue Instructions:  Parking is available on the side of the building, on the street, in the lot across the alley, and in the lot across 31st street.  Please do not park directly behind the building, under the stairway to the upstairs apartments.

Potluck dinner at 6 pm. Program at 7 pm. Potluck instructions are based upon the first letter of the last name.  Please do not bring drinks for the potluck.  Drinks will be available as concessions, so bring a few extra dollars for some soda or coffee.

A-B) Dessert
C-D) Main Dish
E-J) Main Dish
K-R) Side Dish or Salad
S-Z) Side Dish, Bread or Chips

After hours: 9:00 - ?  We will walk across the street to a bar/restaurant, "Eden", to discuss the evening's program.
