In moments of immense sadness, moments that shake the foundation of
our faith in the justice system and mankind, adequate words are scarce.
Today, the Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles co-signed on the
decision to execute Troy Davis.
Despite overwhelming evidence pointing to his innocence -- evidence
that prompted former FBI Director William Sessions and more than a
million others to write in support of clemency -- Troy's execution is
scheduled for 7 p.m. on Wednesday, September 21.
His family has been moved by the efforts of the NAACP and supporters
around the world. They have asked us to express their thanks to you personally.
They also asked us to tell you that this is not the hour to give up.
For the past two decades that Troy has been on death row, miracles
have interceded at crucial moments. Can you help us make a miracle happen now?
Please stand with Troy and his family. Tell District Attorney Larry
Chisolm that he has to intercede:
Chatham County District Attorney Larry Chisolm is the man who
requested the death warrant against Troy Davis. He's the glue that
holds the case together and, even after today's news, he remains in a
unique position to petition the judge to withdraw the death warrant
against Troy. It's a long shot, but it's Troy's best hope.
Please, our last hope is to change the heart of District Attorney
Chisolm. Sign today, and we will make sure that every name is hand
delivered to his office:
We will soon reach out to tell you how you and your families and
communities can organize gatherings in your hometowns to reflect on
Troy's experience, and to offer prayers for his family. But tonight
is the time to redouble our efforts, not to back down. Tonight, we
hold on to hope.
Please, take one last action and sign the petition today:
Thanks for all of your support,
Georgia State Conference President
522 Valencia Street
San Francisco, CA 94110
