FADP Update

Friends: Please take any or all of these important actions. “Silence implies consent.” Your actions are empowering and needed. Two executions are planned for February – Juan Chavez on Wed., Feb. 12 and Paul Howell on Wed., Feb 26. Gov. Scott has set a record breaking pace for executions. Please speak up and speak out.

 

1.  Please TAKE ACTION! Contact Governor Rick Scott and ask him to halt executions and STOP SIGNING DEATH WARRANTS. Gov. Rick Scott – Phone: 850-488-7146    Email: Rick.Scott@eog.myflorida.com

 

2.  Please write letters to the editor in response to Death Penalty articles. Your words can be read by thousands and help move Florida forward.
