The community of Jubilee Partners is opposed to the death penalty. We believe in the possibility of God’s redemptive work in the life of every individual. Ever since Jubilee was founded, various members of the community have visited individuals on death row in Georgia.
In partnership with the Open Door Community we have buried several people in the Jubilee cemetery, who were executed by the state of Georgia.
We continue to hold prayer vigils in Athens whenever an execution is scheduled.
Some members of the community visit people in the federal prison in Atlanta through the Prisoner Visitation and Support Program.
We pray for all involved in criminal justice: prisoners, corrections staff, defense lawyers, prosecutors, judges, police, and crime victims.
