Weekly Report from the Board Meeting at Holman


Today our interaction had to be brief because I am on my way to the Auburn Unitarian Universalist meeting of the Journey Of Hope with Bill Pelke. After that, we go to Roanoke and then Valley in the evening. Nevertheless, there was time to talk to each member, (small group meeting today), Board plus Sub-Board meeting next week. All are well and as always I received lots of positive energy from hearing their voices.


I am grateful for my Holman family! See you next week! Esther

Weekly Report from the Board Meeting at Holman


Among the topics discussed: the Alabama State Conference of the NAACP, Alabama Arise and Witness to Innocence have agreed to collaborate with Project Hope to Abolish the Death Penalty in 2012 to work towards abolition in Alabama. We are very grateful to all three organizations and welcome Witness to Innocence to Alabama. Actually, Witness to Innocence has already been active in Alabama, still we are grateful to be one of its focus states for 2012.

The great Cory Maples news broke during the meeting and of course all were delighted. It was a day of positive news from the commutation in Delaware to the news that Witness to Innocence has chosen Alabama as one of its focal states for 2012. WTI and phadp will be collaborating with the AL State Conference of the NAACP and Alabama Arise in bringing WTI speakers to Alabama.


All this on top of Senator Hank Sanders' announcement of an abolition bill and the Journey of Hope in Alabama! Are we on a roll or what?

There was lots of positive news to discuss today ranging from the Alabama Journey of Hope to several articles in the Birmingham News and the Guardian in the U.K., which all highlighted the problems with the application of the death penalty in Alabama. Also discussed were developments in CA and in Texas where a judge ruled that state's death penalty unconstitutional.

After the weekly update on death penalty news,(fortunately not too much of that during this season), bookkeeping and writing of Thank yous for donations received, it was time for the Christmas/New Year party.

Weekly Report from the Board Meeting at Holman Prison


The Board meeting was delayed, however when it took place topics for discussion were the European Commission Press Release and the overturning of Magwood's death sentence. Could it be that Santa is trying to come to Holman after all? Of course we are all encouraged by both of these pieces of news, but have just one additional request for Santa: Could you please bring us Justice here in Alabama, so that Esther can stop saying: "And then there is Alabama."

The men were very interested to learn about the latest development with the lethal injection drug in Nebraska and wondered whether the middle man who had diverted the drug could be sued by the company.(see below) As always, we questioned the source of Alabama's lethal injection drugs.


One of the Board members was pleased to report that EJI has taken on his appeals. As Alabama is the only state, which does not provide postconviction legal assistance finding pro-bono representation is a huge issue for the men.


See you next week! Esther

Today the following motion was made, seconded and approved by all present:


MOTION


The Board of Project Hope respectfully suggests that Governor Kitzhaber of OR and Governor Bentley of Al switch states. We believe that not only could AL greatly benefit from the leadership of a Governor who pronounced the death penalty morally wrong and unjustly administered, but it would save our governor from being repeatedly put in the position of making choices, which one would hope he too would come to regret.
