January 17, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

0 Shares

The Abolitionist Action Committee (AAC) and affiliated partners will participate in a direct action at the U.S. Supreme Court, which will mark the 45th anniversary of Gary Gilmore, who was the first U.S. prisoner executed in modern history (on Jan. 17, 1977).  This action takes place every 5 years, and has historically resulted in the peaceful arrest of dedicated abolitionists.

People who are not interested in risking arrest are also invited to witness and support the action at a safe distance.  Please let AAC know if you are interested in any role in the action by signing up here: http://www.abolition.org/jan17/index.html
