Weekly Report from the Board Meeting at Holman Prison 9.9.20

                  Weekly Report from the Board Meeting at Holman Prison 9.9.20
 
Our work on the research article of 6,000-8,000 words on capital punishment in the U.S. South is very much in its early stages but already it is very evident that this invitation to write it has sparked a lot of excitement which is translating into action. We are working on an outline and have established a folder for relevant material which will be readily available as we address various areas of the topic. It will definitely be a learning experience for the 3 of us who didn’t finish high school,{although one did get his GED), for the four of us who did finish high school and even for the one who has a college degree. We welcome this challenge!
 
The Board is drafting a letter of support and respect to Navajo President Jonathan Nez and Vice President Myron Lizer. We discussed and studied various articles about the in depth, well organized and united front presented by Native Americans to stop the execution of Lezmond Mitchell. Shameful how often one sees the taking of life as a vote getter! Our organization signed on to the letter to Congress urging abolition of the Federal death penalty and sponsored by Death Penalty Action.
 
As a non-profit 501 C3 organization we are non-partisan and as convicted felons we have no vote. However as with previous general elections as individuals we are able to encourage our families and friends to make sure they are registered and to vote. No Vote, No Voice!
 
Our latest edition of Wings of Hope was mailed yesterday. We hope you will enjoy it as well as be motivated to work for positive change!
 
In closing and as always, we continue to thank all our generous donors who either gave by going to our website and using the “donate” button or who gave directly. Thank you also to all who took the time to read our notes, commented, liked and shared them on Facebook. You encourage us and make all the difference. Please stay safe!
