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.

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.

Yesterday evening, Death Penalty Action was Live on Facebook with Rodney Reed’s brother and supporters in front of the US Supreme Court. The reason Rodney Reed has an execution date is because Rodrick, Wana, RJ & Richard came to the Annual Fast & Vigil at the US Supreme Court that we manage each June 29-July2. They shared Rodney’s story and received front page coverage in their local paper. This annoyed the prosecutor, and an execution date was set. It seems absurd. The prosecutor calls it a “a coincidence.” And yesterday’s event was entitled “Return to the Supreme Court.” Watch the video here.
