Keynote: The Rev Dr Jack Sullivan, Executive Director of the Ohio Council of Churches
The Rev. Dr. Jack Sullivan is the Executive Director of the Ohio Council of Churches. An internationally known speaker, social justice advocate, ecumenist, and death penalty abolitionist, Dr. Sullivan is president of the Governing Board of Ohioans to Stop Executions; co-president of the Disciples Justice Action Network; a member of the National Action Network; and a member of the governing bodies of the Ohio Poor People’s Campaign, and Journey of Hope: From Violence to Healing, a national anti-death penalty organization. His anti-death penalty activism stems from his interest in ending cycles of violence, a concern he has known all too well after the 1997 murder of his sister, Jennifer, in Cleveland, OH.
