Weekly Report from the Board Meeting at Holman Prison 11.24.21

           Weekly Report from the Board Meeting at Holman Prison 11.24.21

The State of Alabama welcomed the holiday season by setting a 1.27.22 execution date for Matthew Reeves who is developmentally disabled.  Reeves was 18 years old at the time of the crime. A neuropsychologist determined that he “has significant deficits in multiple areas of adaptive functioning” and because those deficits appeared before age 18, it was concluded that Reeves is intellectually disabled. This information was never presented at trial.   You can find the Talking Points on our website http://www.phadp.org/?q=alerts.

As it is the day before Thanksgiving we are having our annual Thanksgiving party and wish all of you a happy Thanksgiving! We would recommend keeping politics out of your celebration and just enjoying being with the ones you love.

Work has been continuing on the Christmas edition of Wings of Hope despite some difficulties out of our control which we are working on and hope to overcome. We have also brought the Christmas card list up to date reflecting the new cell numbers. Here is the link to the list http://www.phadp.org/?q=node/915 . The names are in no particular order and please know that every card you write will definitely bring holiday cheer to the recipient.

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. Stay safe and wear a mask!
