ALABAMA VIGILS ON DAY OF EXECUTION

Matthew Reeves is scheduled to be executed on Thursday, January 27th.

We are hoping for a stay from the court and will keep you informed. In the event that the execution goes forward, here are the vigils around the state. Please support them and remember that it is not too late to call, email or fax the Governor and that it is never too late to protest all killing. PHONE 1-334-242-7100  FAX: 1-334-242-328
