We are sad to announce that the State of Alabama took the life of William Glenn Boyd tonight at Holman Prison. Our thoughts and prayers are with Glenn’s family and friends.
We thank all of you who wrote letters, emailed, faxed and called Governor Bentley’s office on Glenn’s behalf. We thank everyone who organized and attended vigils around the state and who joined with us in France, Germany and England. We thank the Alabama State Conference of the NAACP, the Alabama New South Coalition, Alabama Arise, Alabama Peace Groups, the Quakers, Micah’s House as well as ACAT-France for their support. We thank our sister organizations JAM and the Quest for Social Justice for all you do all the time.
We know that justice is never done when a human being is murdered, whether it is by an individual or by the state. We also know that when we do not raise our voices in protest we become complicit in the murder. We are very grateful to all of you because together we will overcome one day!
