I hope you each had a gentle weekend. That was a hard week, in so many ways. I am sure it was difficult for each of us in our own way. Nevertheless, together we did our job to raise awareness and protest, and we created significant impact. More on that soon.
Death Penalty Action is meeting with allies in the Terre Haute Death Penalty Resistence network in the coming days. We will evaluate our efforts and plan adjustments for how we address the next federal execution, which is currently set for August 28th, just five weeks from Friday.
There is so much more to be done, and we’re going to take a few days to evaluate and re-set. Death Penalty Action will continue to keep watch for you, and we will issue news and action updates on our Facebook and Twitter pages as available. We must continue to work, hope and pray for the best, but prepare for the worst.
Here is a sample social media post you can use to invite others to join the call to end federal executions:
