Weekly Report from the Board Meeting at Holman Prison 5.29.19

Weekly Report from the Board Meeting at Holman Prison 5.29.19

Tomorrow, unless there is a stay from the Governor, Christopher Lee Price will be executed. We have sent out the list of vigils and hope you can attend. Please note that whether there is a stay or not the Political Protest Vigil organized by our sister organization JAM will take place on the corner of Richard Arrington Jr. Blvd and 8th Ave N across from the Jefferson County Court Building, on the corner of the east end of the Birmingham Museum of Art. 11:30 a.m.- 1:00 p.m. All invited! "Watch with Me One Hour."

It really only takes a couple of minutes to call Governor Kay Ivey to remind her of her statement that all life is sacred, ask her to grant clemency,  and to halt all executions. 1-334-242-7100. Thank you for doing that!

Members of our organization together with other death row inmates at Holman are scheduled to hold their vigils today and tomorrow.

Melissa Brown of the Montgomery Advertiser followed up by mail on her initial interview and telephone conversation with the Board. All letters were promptly and diligently answered. It feels good to us to be heard especially on topics we know about first hand.

Our Chairman is also in touch with long time supporter Dr. Dennis Sansom of the Philosophy Department of Samford University. Different possibilities are in the process of being explored. We very much appreciate the possibility of reaching out to students through professors who can provide a more permanent connection.

We continue to thank anonymous donors who gave by going to our website and using the “donate” button and of course also those who gave directly. We would also like to welcome the new members who joined our email list last week. We are encouraged by the kind messages we receive and which are all forwarded to the Board. This week we would like to lift up the message which touched us deeply which came from Toby Lafferty, founder of Books Inside in Utah who assured us that “our voices are being heard” and that she is contacting the Governor’s office. Her non- profit is doing amazing work getting books to prisons which we know from our own experience make all the difference.

Finally, thank you to all who have already written or called the Governor asking her to stop all killing by the State. The time is NOW! : 1-334-242-7100.
