ACTION ALERT: Help stop the execution of Andrew Brannan

The Commissioner of the Department of Corrections, Brian Owens, set an execution date for Andrew Brannan for Tuesday, January 13, 2015 at 7:00pm.

His lawyers will present to the Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles on Monday, January 12 at 9:00am. The Parole Board is the entity in Georgia that has the sole authority to grant or deny clemency (either to commute, or reduce, a death sentence to life without parole.) Only after a person has exhausted all appeals and other avenues of relief will the Parole Board consider granting clemency. 

We could really use your help getting the clemency letter signed by Thursday afternoon (1/8/15). Andrew's clemency hearing is on Monday and his attorneys plan to send the letters on Friday.
