Call for actions on World Day in Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean States

By World Coalition Against the Death Penalty, on 1 July 2020

The Greater Caribbean For Life (GCL) and the World Coalition Against the Death Penalty (the World Coalition) are part of a joint project, led by The Death Penalty Project and funded by the European Union, which aims to create a platform for death penalty reform in Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean, leading to eventual abolition. In the framework of this project, GCL and the World Coalition want to support a civil society movement for the abolition of the death penalty in Antigua & Barbuda, Barbados, Dominica, Grenada, Saint Kitts & Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent & the Grenadines.

To do so, they are launching a call for actions on the issue of the death penalty and will help finance activities lasting between 3 – 6 months with small grants from EUR 1,000 to EUR 3,000 (EC Dollar: 3,175 – 9,525 or BBD: 2,350 – 7,050).

Please note that the small grants offer will follow the terms and conditions imposed by the European Union.
