Monday, Sept 15, 12 noon – 1pm
Legislative Plaza (corner of 6th and Charlotte)
As students and educators, we seek to understand the world and to share our understanding with others through a practice of critical thinking and responsible action. Therefore, we cannot remain silent as Tennessee plans to execute people in the name of justice.
We call upon Governor Bill Haslam to suspend all scheduled executions immediately, and to commission a full and transparent review of capital punishment in Tennessee.
Today at noon, Tennessee Students and Educators for Social Justice will send a delegation to deliver our Open Letter to Governor Haslam, asking him to stop currently-scheduled executions and to conduct a full and transparent review of Tennessee’s death penalty system.
Come out and support our delegation! Bring signs to express your views and banners to represent your school, college, community group, or congregation.
