Governor DeWine: Three Steps to Save More Lives from COVID-19

  1. Governor DeWine has already declared that Ohio will not use legitimate pharmaceuticals to conduct lethal injection executions. Sign this petition urging Governor DeWine to order any stock of Midazolam currently in possession of the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction for the purpose of executions be immediately turned over to hospitals treating COVID-19 patients​.
  2. Sign this petition co-sponsored by 20 Ohio faith oriented organizations​ calling for stronger and immediate action granting relief to Ohio prisoners in the face of the rampant spread of COVID-19 in the Ohio prison system.
  3. Call Governor DeWine at 614–644–4357 to thank him for his leadership addressing COVID-19 and to urge the immediate release of Kevin Keith​, an innocent man awaiting a court ruling in his case seeking his exoneration and freedom. Kevin’s death sentence was commuted in 2010 by then-Governor Strickland, just days before his scheduled execution. Newly developed evidence should free him, but he can’t wait any longer. Kevin has tested positive for COVID-19. He should be freed immediately to receive proper medical attention while he awaits the ruling of the US District Court of Appeals in Ohio.
