[SDCPJ] Save Rodney Reed - Act Now!



-please forward widely-
The San Diego Coalition for Peace and Justice urges you to help
Save Texas death row prisoner Rodney Reed
Rodney's family and supporters are organizing a campaign to win clemency from newly elected Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles.

Learn more about Rodney's case from the New Abolitionist
Rodney Reed, an innocent man on Texas death row, faces an execution date of March 5. Reed, who is African American, was convicted and sentenced to death by an all-white jury for the 1996 murder of Stacey Stites. His case is a troubling mixture of prosecutorial misconduct, police corruption, inadequate legal defense and institutional racism. Evidence of his innocence is overwhelming, and the need for a new trial is indisputable.

What we can do:

Send clemency letters to Gov. Greg Abbott (Office of the Governor, P.O. Box 12428, Austin, TX 78711-2428) and the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles (P.O. Box 13401, Austin, TX 78711-3401). You can find and download a sample clemency letter here .
Sign the online petition for Rodney at change.org .
Stay updated about Rodney's case through social media. Follow the Justice for Rodney Reed campaign on Facebook, on Twitter, and on Instagram. Share your own solidarity photo and tag it #Justice4Rodney -
Protest in San Diego to save Rodney Reed on Monday, March 2, 5:30 pm at the Hall of Justice 330 West Broadway, downtown San Diego.
