ALABAMA VIGILS ON DAY OF EXECUTION 10.5.17

Friends,

The State has appealed the stay of execution for Jeffrey Borden to the U.S. Supreme Court. If the U.S. Supreme Court should lift the stay here are the vigils around the state this Thursday. Please also note that on Thursday JAM will hold its 11:30-1:00 p.m vigil whether the stay is lifted or not. (see below)

 Please support them and remember that it is not too late to call, email or fax the Governor and that it is never too late to protest all killing. PHONE 1-334-242-7100     FAX: 1-334-242-328

Thank you for all you do.
