We are very sad to announce that tonight the State of Alabama took the life of Domineque Ray. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family members, friends and his valiant attorneys who were able to get a stay from the 11th.The stay was lifted by the U.S. Supreme Court at Alabama’s request, a state that knows little about justice and prides itself on in its bloody history.


We thank all of you who wrote, faxed, tweeted and called the Governor to let her know that Alabama does not kill in our name and that we will not condone state assisted homicide. We thank everyone who organized and attended vigils around the state and who joined with us from abroad. We thank the Alabama State Conference of the NAACP, Alabama New South Coalition,SOS, Alabama Arise, Alabama Peace Groups, the Quakers, Oppose, Lifespark,the Catholic Mobilizing Network as well as ACAT-France for their support. As always, we especially thank our sister organization JAM in Birmingham. Our thanks also to freelance journalist and friend Lauren Gill, whose article “Domineque Ray Is Set to Be Executed Thursday. Did He Ever Really Have a Chance At Being Spared?” did a great job of highlighting the injustice of tonight’s executions, of all executions.


We know that justice is not done when a human being is murdered, whether it is by an individual or by the State. Thank you for continuing to stand with us so that one day we may overcome at last! R.I.P. Domineque!
