If you signed the petition demanding the Bastrop County Prosecutor withdrawal the execution date for Rodney Reed, Thank you.

​Now, celebrities are getting involved. The Innocence Project just sent *this letter*​ to Texas Governor Abbott. Pressure is mounting. It is time for the next step.

Please call Governor Greg Abbott everyday to stop Rodney Reed’s execution!


Do not leave a voicemail. Be sure to speak with a human being. You may come in contact with Tammy, Jan, or someone else. Please help in making sure Abbott’s phone rings nonstop about stopping Rodney’s execution.


Yes, the Innocence Project is leading the legal battle, but right now, Rodney’s bother and sister-in-law, Wana Akpan, are on a cross-country trip raising awareness about this case. Dr. Phil is not paying them. The Innocence Project is not covering their costs. Death Penalty Action is helping them, and right now, YOU are invited to chip in to assist the Reed Justice Initiative as Rodrick and Wana travel the country. Click here to help right now. (The photo above is Roderick in the pulpit at Mt. Hermon Missionary Baptist Church in Columbus, Ohio, making the case for Rodney’s freedom!)
