Yesterday the US Supreme Court failed to act, which may mean the first federal executions in 17 years on July 13, 15 & 17 in Terre Haute, Indiana. Death Penalty Action will be there.
Petitions and other actions you may take to protest these executions are here: http://deathpenaltyaction.org/federal-death-penalty.

You do not need a Facebook account to watch, or see the archive of programs already completed. The full schedule is here. Please note that the opening and closing events require registration, which is here.
2020’s Fast & Vigil will be virtual. This is the first time in 27 years that we are not encouraging in-person attendance. Nevertheless, because we are on-line, we have opened the door to so much more! There are 16 panel discussions on numerous related topics featuring leaders in our movement who are experts and voices of experience on the issue. Because of our amazing sponsors, anyone may watch these panels free of charge. Those who register will be invited to the private closing event via Zoom starting at 11:30pm Thursday evening (July 2, 2020).
