UPDATE: Feb 23: Rodney Reed’s execution has been stayed pending further review by the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals.
Thanks to the efforts of the student chapter of Amnesty International at the University of Texas, Rodney Reed is the subject of an Amnesty International Urgent Action. We are thankful toAmnesty for recognizing the grave injustices in Rodney’s case and for sharing this information with its membership!
Their fact sheet is available in pdf or html for easy sharing, and includes information for those who wish to write a clemency letter to Texas Governor Greg Abbott and the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles, asking them to stop Rodney’s execution. Thanks to Amnesty for helping us take Rodney’s case truly international!
