August 29, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

Richard Glossip is an innocent man on Oklahoma’s death row inmate.  We need to prove his innocence before he is executed. Richard’s legal team has been hard at work uncovering new evidence that casts serious doubt on his conviction. Richard’s execution date could be scheduled any day now.

Will you join the 8,000+ people who have signed our new petition urging Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt and the state Pardon and Parole Board to call for an independent investigation into the new evidence in Richard Glossip’s case? Executing Richard Glossip in the face […]

June 27, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

I’m sharing some information from my July TV program, “Empowering the Progressive Movement,” so you can see examples of smart strategies for the movement to abolish the death penalty.  The information I’m linking below is relevant to ANY issue you work on, but you might enjoy seeing the excerpt here about the death penalty:   I summarized a different example of successful grassroots organizing that has been winning victories in a growing number of states and two big victories nationwide.  The death penalty is sharply declining in the U.S.! Since before 1990 I have been organizing strategically toward abolishing the […]

Empowering the Progressive Movement: Watch Glen’s video. Read transcript and more resources.

June 27, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

The July 2021 interview on “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” TV series helps you and other people make more progress when we work on issues you care about. Many of the issues we care about are HUGE issues in which WE are the UNDERDOGS.  Powerful forces created the unjust status quo — and powerful forces sustain the injustices we are trying to eliminate. Because we are the underdogs in these big issues, we need to empower ourselves and bring many people together so we can organize large nonviolent grassroots movements to solve the problems and create peaceful and just societies at the […]

Virginia is the first Southern state to abolish the death penalty

March 21, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

In the U.S., the South has been executing more people than any other part of the nation.  But the big news now is that in early February 2021 Virginia became the first Southern state to abolish the death penalty.  Here are two articles about this:   Both chambers of the Virginia state legislature voted to abolish the state’s death penalty in early February 2021. Virginia has committed the most executions of any state other than Texas – a total of 113 since 1976, and hundreds more in the centuries prior.  The links here were written shortly before Gov. Ralph Northam […]

Short videos: Innocent people speak about having been released from death row.

January 6, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

From 1973 through 2020, a total of 173 INNOCENT PERSONS were released from death row! See the data compiled by the Death Penalty Information Center at https://deathpenaltyinfo.org/policy-issues/innocence-database See the link below in which SIX of these exonerees tell their stories in very brief videos. FIRST-HAND EXPERIENCES are very compelling. Death row exonerees are living proof that innocent people are sentenced to death. They are living proof that WE MUST ABOLISH THE DEATH PENALTY. These videos were created and distributed by Witness to Innocence (www.witnesstoinnocence.org). WATCH THEM AT THIS LINK: https://www.witnesstoinnocence.org/imlivingproof?eType=EmailBlastContent&eId=4faf9825-e61a-45f8-b4b1-bfbd8bd56c94

Trump plans more executions before Jan. 20. Sign petition to STOP THIS EXECUTION scheduled for TUES JAN 12!

January 6, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

A few months ago Trump and his Attorney General William Barr scheduled MANY executions to occur before Trump’s scheduled end of office on January 20, 2021.  The federal death penalty is every bit as cruel and unjust as the death penalty that is allowed by various states’ laws. A growing number of states have abolished the death penalty, some other states have moratoriums on actually conducting executions, and some other states have retained their death penalty law but never use it.  Executions do occur in several states.  For information about the federal death penalty, state-by-state information, methods of execution, problems, etc., […]
