An execution date has been scheduled for a Georgia man, Melbert Ray Ford, for June 9, 2010. You may recall that Mr. Ford was scheduled for execution in February, but that it was halted because there were only 4 (out of 5) Parole Board members currently appointed.  For more information go to ajc.com.

Watch for an action alert from us for clemency letters to the Parole Board in the next day. Once you receive the alert, we urge you to take immediate action to let the State of Georgia know that the killing of one of our citizens brings no healing or justice.
