I want to tell you what’s happening in Ohio, but first, Please sign this petition to help stop the Tennessee executions.
It’s been nonstop in Ohio, where as co-Director of Death Penalty Action, I’ve been working hand in hand with Ohioans to Stop Executions (OTSE) to help develop strategy and lead the organizing and strategic communications to help stop the execution of William Montgomery. I was able to visit WT on death row on Wednesday — he is strong of spirit, and he thanks YOU for your Prayers, support and action. (That’s me on the right, and OTSE director Kevin Werner on the left, with WT.
This week we hit it out of the park! Coverage of our press conference was solid, (AP, Toledo Blade) and we live-tweeted Thursday’s Clemency hearing before Ohio’s Parole Board, which I believe left many members with #TooMuchDoubt. Today (Saturday), we have powerful Op-Eds published in the Columbus Dispatch and the Toledo Blade — I am proud that Death Penalty Action is part of this terrific team!
We have just over four more weeks to stop the killing. Here is how YOU can help:
- Sign & share this Change.org petition — More than 3000 people have signed so far. Please help us gather as many signatures as possible for presentation to Governor Kasich — just before Good Friday.
- Invest in Death Penalty Action’s work in Ohio via this special link. Your investment today enables us do more of this life-saving work in Ohio.
- Print the Op-Eds and mail them to Governor Kasich with your hand written note asking him to read them and stop the execution. [Gov. John Kasich, Riffe Center, 30th Floor, 77 S. High St., Columbus, OH 43215–6117]
4. Ask others to join you in supporting Death Penalty Action’s life-saving work by forwarding this message along with your own encouragement.
