If you’re wondering how to respond to Georgia’s scheduled September 21st execution of Troy Davis you’ve come to the right place. Thanks to Courtney-Rose Harris of the NAACP for providing this information. AGB
Three ways to help Troy Davis and his family
The Georgia Board of Pardons & Paroles will determine Troy Davis’ fate on September 19 during a final clemency hearing. As NAACP President & CEO Benjamin Jealous said, “Time is running out, and this is truly Troy’s last chance for life.”
Now is the time for action! The NAACP (in partnership with Amnesty International) began the TooMuchDoubt campaign Tuesday. There are three easy ways that people can support Troy Davis.
1. Sign the petition to the Board of Pardons and pass this on to your friends and family. Each name means a more united front for justice:
2. Send a message of support to Troy as he fights for justice on what may be the final days of his life.
3. Make sure everyone knows about this injustice. Spread the word on Facebook and Twitter (hashtag #TooMuchDoubt) so that Troy Davis’ story can be heard. We still have a chance to save his life, but only if people are willing to speak out against injustice.
The NAACP will also be on the ground mobilizing our members and allies in the state of Georgia as Davis’ hearing date approaches. On September 15 we will hold a rally at the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, GA.
It’s clear that there is no justice in executing a man when there is just too much doubt. We are certain that with this information your readers and supporters will be more than compelled to support Troy Davis.
