As someone who has been opening our e-mails, I wanted to share the following with you right away.
First, thank you for reading. This morning Death Penalty Action’s work is featured prominently in a long story published by The Intercept. Headlined “Blood In the Water,” the first two sections are at the top level of the issue, but I suggest you get yourself a nice drink of your favorite beverage and give this a full read..
We are also excited to have had our first bite (outside of Terre Haute) of breaking news coverage on what these federal executions are really all about. The New York Times ran this Reuters story on Saturday in which there can be no missing our message.
Friend, this the moment Death Penalty Action was created for, and because of you, we’re ready. We’ve revised our federal death penalty action page, which includes a new petition, and also a new organizational sign-on letter. Please have a look as see how you can plug in. Especially if you are part of any sort of organization, business, civic group, faith community, etc., please ask leadership to sign on to the letter before the deadline!
Updates and news items will continue to be posted regularly on our Facebook and Twitter pages. If you use those platforms, please go there today and share our posts from this weekend. Together will will make the most of the time we are in to set the stage for abolishing the death penalty in the coming year! Thank you for your support and all that you do.
Yours in the Struggle,
Abraham J. Bonowitz, Director
