#2 — TAKE ACTION! Please share these posts regarding pending executions in Texas and Ohio and take the actions requested — ASAP!
- Pls contact @GovAbbott to urge him to grant a 30-day reprieve to Chris Young so he and Mitesh Patel can meet in person. 888–382–2415 https://gov.texas.gov/apps/contact/opinion.aspx … #deathpenalty #SaveChrisYoung #ListenToMitesh
- #RobertVanHook served honorably and is extremely remorseful for murdering David Self. Dial 614–466–3555 NOW to tell Governor @JohnKasich we can be safe and hold Van Hook accountable without executing him. Ask the Governor to stop the July 18 scheduled execution!
#3 — Starvin’ for Justice: The 25th Annual Fast & Vigil to Abolish the Death Penalty was an incredibly powerful witness. We’ll write more about that soon, but explore the directory of links to the videos of the many “Voices of Experience on the Death Penalty” who spoke at the evening teach-ins. Check them out here!
How will YOU help?
More soon. Thank you! Yours in the Struggle,
— Scott & Abe
