Stop the Execution of Rodney Reed

November 11, 2019
By Catholic Mobilizing Network

The state of Texas plans to execute Rodney Reed on Wednesday, November 20th for a crime he maintains he did not commit.

Perhaps you saw this case on last night's evening news?

Rodney Reed has spent more than 20 years on Texas' death row for a crime he maintains he did not commit. His innocence claim is substantial, yet he is slated for execution in less than two weeks.

It is rare that I reach out to inform you of an upcoming execution that urgently requires your attention, but that is the situation I currently find myself in.

It is critical that Texas Governor Greg Abbott intervene to prevent the execution of an innocent man.

Urge Gov. Abbott to STOP the Execution of Rodney Reed
