Cities for Life Day

Cities for Life Day: November 30th

November 30th is the Cities for Life Day.

On this day of 1765, Leopold I of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany first suspended the death penalty in Europe.

Under the initiative of the Catholic NGO “Community of Sant’Egidio”, campaigns against the death penalty are held around the world.

Some night events are held such as lighting up tourist attractions and buildings.

As of 2020, over 1,600 cities are participating in this movement.
