Vigil to Stop the Execution

The State of Nevada plans to kill Scott Dozier by lethal injection on Tuesday, November 14, 2017.  To protest this execution and the resumption of executions in Nevada after an 11-year lapse, the Nevada Coalition Against the Death Penalty is holding a vigil/protest in Carson City on Wednesday, November 1.  The Life, Peace & Justice Commission of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Reno invites all people of faith to join them in this gathering.  The vigil/protest will take place from 5 to 6:30 pm in the sidewalk area in front of the Legislative Building at 401 S. Carson St. (corner of S. Carson and 5th Streets).  We will gather to remember the victims of violence and to pray for healing for their loved ones.  We will gather to call on Governor Sandoval to stop the execution of Mr. Dozier, who is being killed with an experimental combination of drugs never before used in an execution.  We will gather in opposition to the barbaric practice of killing a prisoner.  Please, join us.
