Across the nation and throughout the world, support for Troy continues to build. Media outlets from CNN to the Huffington Post are telling his story, one of a man set to be executed next week despite seven of the nine original witnesses recanting their testimony or changing their stories, and no physical evidence linking him to the crime.
Earlier today, we delivered more than 660,000 petition signatures to the Georgia Board of Pardons & Paroles in support of halting Troy’s execution and granting him clemency. It was a powerful moment for those who took part, and one that we hope will have a profound impact on the members of the Board when they meet to decide Troy’s fate on Monday.
(This is taken from the e-mail NAACP sent out to thank me for signing the petition, this is amazing news that so many are trying to help!)
