Virtual vigils held as executions take place in different states

Death Penalty Action is hosting virtual vigils as executions take place in different states. The vigils begin an hour before the execution is scheduled and end either after the execution has happened or when it is called off. Each vigil takes the form of a webinar via Zoom.
