The Georgia Board of Pardons and Parole is holding a hearing for Daniel Lucas on Tuesday, April 26 at 9:00 am. He is scheduled to be executed on Wednesday, April 27 at 7:00pm, unless the board intervenes. You can read Daniel’s clemency petition here. 

Here are three things you can do:

  1.            Sign the clemency petition urging the board to intervene and grant Daniel clemency. 
  2.      Join us outside of the Sloppy Floyd building at 8:00am as we gather outside before Daniel’s clemency hearing. The address is 2 Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive, S.E
  3.            Contact Governor Nathan Deal to Influence His Parole Board

While the parole is the only entity that can grant clemency, the five members are appointed by the Governor. Please take a moment to contact Governor Deal and urge him to intervene. Please take this action TODAY. Below is a sample script.

“Hi, my name is ______, and I am a Georgia voter from ______. I am writing to ask you to urge your parole board to grant clemency for Daniel Lucas. Mr. Lucas is scheduled to be executed on April 27 and I am deeply troubled that Georgia might proceed with this execution. Again, please urge your parole board to grant Daniel Lucas clemency. Thank you.
