Nathaniel Woods


We are very sad to announce that tonight the State of Alabama took the life of Nathaniel Woods. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family members, friends and his attorneys. We hope that they will receive some comfort knowing that they did everything possible to get the word out about Nathaniel’s innocence.

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, Witness to Innocence as well as ACAT-France for their support. As always, we especially thank our sister organization JAM in Birmingham.

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. Nate!
