May 19:
Participate in the Global Day of Action for Troy Davis

Troy Davis, a man who may well be innocent, has a 30-day stay of execution that is about to expire. No court has yet held a hearing on the new evidence of tainted testimony, yet they are willing to end his life. On May 19th, every person can help make a difference by participating in any activity, event or creative action that calls attention to the injustice of his case.

Each step of the way, authorities have continued to try to wash their hands of their responsibility to ensure that justice is achieved and an innocent man is not executed. No more! Please help us create one segment of a very long, visually striking, cloth petition to Georgia authorities. We will attach them all together. » Help us create a massive petition for justice!


The Court extended Davis' stay of execution for 30 days to give him a chance to file a habeas corpus petition with the US Supreme Court. » More information on the court's decision and case background
