The Fairness Campaign is a broad-based community effort dedicated to equal rights. Its primary goal is comprehensive civil rights legislation prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. It’s also one of KCADP’s partners.
Yesterday the campaign’s director Chris Hartman’s sent this e-mail to the group’s followers:
Friends, The Fairness Campaign has long held a position in opposition to the death penalty. As many of you know, Governor Steve Beshear has ordered Kentucky inmate Gregory Wilson be put to death. While some recent court proceedings may delay the execution set for Thursday, they may not.
Please contact Governor Steve Beshear and ask him to reverse his decision to put Gregory Wilson to death by calling his office at (502) 564-2611.
Then, please attend one of these vigils…or ride a bus with the Kentucky Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty to Eddyville the night of the planned execution.
Chris Hartman, Director
