Thank you for signing the petition to help stop the May 19th execution of Walter “Arkie” Barton in Missouri in revenge for his alleged murder of Gladys Kuehler.

Please help us boost the numbers of petition signatures. At this time we have over 700 signatures. We hope to get that number over 2,000 by 8pm EDT on Tuesday, May 12th, which is when we will prepare them for in-person delivery by MADP on Wednesday.

  • Please send this link to anyone you think may join you in signing if you ask them to: http://txtf.co/DCuNAJ​
  • Here is a sample social media post you may use: There’s #TooMuchDoubt to execute #WalterBarton in #Missouri on May 19: Please sign and share the petition now at http://txtf.co/DCuNAJ. #SaveArkie #EndTheDeathPenalty #StopExecutions @MADPMO @DeathPenaltyAct ​
  • Even if you have already done so, please also contact Governor Parson to request that he grant clemency for Walter “Arkie” Barton. Phone: 573–751–3222 (you may leave a message if after hours) // e-mail him via his web page: https://governor.mo.gov/contact-us

Thank you!
