The road sign at the northeast corner of the federal prison complex in Terre Haute, Indiana. We corrected it.

Yesterday as we were driving toward Terre Haute, we received the call: The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals overturned the stay of execution in the Daniel Lee case. Unless the US Supreme Court intervenes, it is likely that today Lee will become the first federal prisoner executed since 2003.

Welcome to the roller coaster of the death penalty.

Because of YOU, Death Penalty Action co-directors Scott Langley and Abe Bonowitz are in Terre Haute. 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 hope and pray for the best, but prepare for the worst.

In partnership with allies, we have scheduled a press conference for 10am EDT and a protest vigil for 3pm EDT (going live at 3:30pm). Both will be live-streamed on the Terre Haute Death Penalty Resistance Facebook page​. Watch live, here​ at 10am and at 3:30pm.
