Even though the deadline for the Special Master’s hearing was on June 1, we still haven’t anything new regarding the fate of Reggie Clemons. The Justice for Reggie Campaign is taking this as a good sign, that Judge Manners is taking the time to review all the evidence to make the best recommendation possible. Once we hear something, we will let everyone know and then proceed to take the necessary actions based on the recommendation Judge Manners makes.
In the Meantime…
Of course, this delay isn’t stopping us from working on human rights issues. This is why our monthly business meeting is still happening tomorrow at 7 p.m. at Hartford Coffee Company. If we do get a decision by tomorrow, then we will spend the meeting discussing our next course of action. If we don’t have a decision, then we will be working on our upcoming Half the Sky fundraiser (you need to read the book and watch the movie if you haven’t yet, as both of them are amazing). We’ve been so moved by what we’ve learned that we want to do a fundraiser, even though we haven’t decided upon a specific organization or event/fundraising method yet. However, we will make a decision tomorrow.
We will also be talking about the upcoming Pride Festival at Tower Grove Park at the end of month. We’re going to have a table there, so we are looking for volunteers.
Please come if you can! We’d love to hear your ideas! Hope to see you there! Below is a recap of the meeting details:
When: 7 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
Where: Hartford Coffee Company on the corner of Roger and Hartford in Tower Grove
Who: Amnesty International St. Louis chapter, and those interested in human rights
What: Essentially, to make plans for the summer
