As we near the 1000th execution since the resumption of state sanctioned-killings, abolitionists around the country are using this impending horrific and historic event to educate and activate people on the issue of the death penalty. Amnesty International USA has taken a leading role in providing activists with tools and opportunities for organizing for the 1000th execution.
According to Bob Van Steenburg, TCADP-Austin is planning to hold a candle-light vigil behind the Governor’s Mansion from 5:30-6:30pm.
If you’re a Texan and planning on hosting an event for the 1000th execution, currently scheduled to fall on November 30th, please inform our readers. Also, list your event here.
