I was asked to contact each of you & extend an invite for you or a representative of your group to attend this meeting. It is short notice but it was determined it was an opportunity to take advantage of people traveling to the prison for the execution scheduled that night at 6pm. We are in hopes of a stay but expect that to be in the 11th hour.
Please come if you can. We need to end state sanctioned killing as well as nation sanctioned killing like the war. We need to refuse to allow such thinking whether on a local, state or national level.
See invite below. I will be calling you to follow up. Let me know if you have any questions.
