Vigil at Florida State Prison for James Barnes
TAMPA, Florida – James Barnes is scheduled to be executed at 6:00 pm on Thursday, August 3, for the murder of Patricia “Patsy” Miller.
Unless a Stay of Execution is issued before Thursday, join Floridians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty (FADP); Florida’s 23rd death row exoneree and FADP Board Vice Chair Herman Lindsey; and allies from across the state at 5:00 pm on August 3 for a vigil and peaceful protest ahead of the scheduled execution.
Gather in the designated area across the highway from the Death Chamber at Florida State Prison, 23916 NW 83rd Ave, Raiford, FL 32026.
FADP is a Florida-based, state-wide organization of individuals and groups working together to end the death penalty in Florida. Our network includes dozens of state and local groups and thousands of individual Floridians, including murder victims’ family members and other survivors of violent crime, law enforcement professionals, families of the incarcerated, and death row exonerees.
