Former Death Row Inmate to Speak in Fayetteville

FAYETTEVILLE, AR — A former Alabama death row inmate is sharing his story about life after prison and his support for Senate Bill 298, which would have done away with the death penalty in Arkansas.

After six years on death row, Gary Drinkard was exonerated. On Tuesday, March 31, he will be speaking at the University of Arkansas School of Law room 342 at 12:00 p.m., and at the Fayetteville Underground Gallery on the Fayetteville Square at 6:30 p.m.

Following Drinkard’s speech at the Fayetteville Underground, people in attendance are invited to make signs and take them to the Fayetteville Square immediately afterward to protest the lack of a vote on Senate Bill 298.

These events are being supported by the Witness to Innocence Project. CLICK HERE to learn more.
