So Much Happening on Death Penalty

#TooIllToExecute premiers tonight!

There’s so much going on! Wyoming’s House of Representatives passed an Abolition bill and repeal bills are being teed up on New Hampshire, Colorado, Washington (for the record), and where else?

Also, Ohio executions are at a stand-still again, states are looking at alternative execution methods, and the US Supreme Court just decided you get your spiritual advisor in the execution chamber with you, but only if you are Christian.What are we going to do about THAT? (Hint — come to the Fast & Vigil June 29-July 2 in Washington, DC!)


Each of these things could be it’s own e-mail. Rather than flood your in-box, we’re posting on Facebook & Twitter.


“Too Ill to Execute,” a documentary film about the nationwide need for a severe mental illness exclusion to the death penalty, will have an online premier TONIGHT and YOU are invited!
