ALERT: THREE STATE-SANCTIONED EXECUTIONS PLANNED FOR JANUARY!
Use of the death penalty in the United States is at a 20 year low but Texas is ramping it up! Until May 2015, 15 executions are set at the Walls Unit in Huntsville. Three executions are scheduled for January alone, Jan 21, 28, 29.
It is time for people of faith to take a deliberate, outward stand against the death penalty. Here's a way you can take a stand and make your voice heard.
A coalition of area clergy, groups opposed to the death penalty and individuals will protest the first Texas execution of 2015.
When: 5:30 PM, Wednesday, January 21
Where: Mockingbird Bridge at Central Expressway (75)
As it gets dark, the group will do a light display with the North Texas Light Brigade. Please wear black or dark clothing.
