Dear Ohio Legislators,
On Sunday, June 27, 2021, Wiley Bridgeman passed away. His life bore witness to the urgency of death penalty abolition in Ohio. Wiley was wrongfully sentenced to death in Ohio and spent 39 years wrongfully incarcerated before he was exonerated in 2014.
Wiley was a poet, a sage, a humble and gracious friend and brother. In his memory today, we call on Ohio legislators to abolish the death penalty.
