Lost in the Mix: Two Executions This Week.

Lost in the mix. Today and Thursday, despite COVID, fires, hurricanes, and the awful politics of the election and now the next Supreme Court nomination process, the Trump Administration is moving forward with two federal executions. Most people have no idea this is happening. It is up to all of us to shine a spotlight on these executions.

That is why Death Penalty Action is building a campaign coalition to end the federal death penalty, providing action tools for anyone wishing to do something, and TODAY, hosting a press conference at Congress this afternoon at 1pm EDT. Watch it live, or afterwards, here.

We’ll be live again at the same link starting about 5:30pm EDT, with vigils outside the prison at Terre Haute, and also at the Department of InJustice in Washington, DC.

All of this takes resources. The more we have, the more we can do. You can help.


Because of you, and with your help, today in Washington, DC. we are presenting our petition and organizational sign-on letter, calling on Congress to take action to end the federal death penalty.

Lawyers are fighting in the courts. For the rest of us, our job right now is to shine the spotlight on this issue. Resources for Abolitionists includes links everything you need to take action and become a part of the grassroots effort to stop federal executions. Sharable tools including powerful short videos, news and more actions are on our social media. Please visit our Facebook, Twitter and/or Instagram pages to “like” or “follow” and share from there.

One thing we do know is this. Together, with your support, Death Penalty Action is making the difference.

I know this issue matters to you. Please give generously right now.

Yours in the Struggle,

— Abe
