Weekly Report from the Board Meeting at Holman Prison 6.7.17

Weekly Report from the Board Meeting at Holman Prison 6.7.17

We are very sad to report that the execution of Robert Bryant Melson is back on for Thursday after the U.S. Supreme Court lifted a stay granted by the 11th last week.
Three of the nine Supreme Court associate justices - Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, and Sonia Sotomayor  - said they did not want to vacate the stay of execution, according to the brief order.
 Please continue to contact the Governor. PHONE 1-334-242-7100     FAX: 1-334-242-328 Contact form: http://governor.alabama.gov/contact/ to let her know that you do not condone state murder! And if possible please attend a vigil near you tomorrow. The first of 2 prayer vigils scheduled at a time of an execution by the men at Holman was held today.

We are grateful and honored to welcome Dr. Katie Owens-Murphy, Assistant Professor of English at the University of North Alabama to our Advisory Board. Her achievements are many but we are particularly grateful to her for imagining and then founding the UNA-Holman Pen Pal Program.

Thank you to all the friends who reached out to us about our typewriter problems. It is reassuring to know that you are there! So far the problem has not been resolved however the newsletter is at the printer. It had to be completed on the outside which means it will not be uniform in appearance but we trust that you will enjoy it anyway.

Esther  will be attending the Alabama New South Coalition Spring Membership Convention this Saturday.
See you next week!
