TAKE ACTION for John Conner on Wednesday, JULY 13th at 8:00AM

posted Jul 12, 2016, 2:17 PM by GFADP staff

Please join us tomorrow, 7/13, as we gather outside the Sloppy Floyd Building at 8:00am to show support to John Conner’s legal team and his family before his clemency hearing. The address is 2 Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive, S.E., Atlanta 30334. Bring your own signs and banners if you are inspired to do so! You can read his petition for clemency here. 

Also, take a moment to contact the Governor Nathan Deal to influence his parole board. While the parole board 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 John Conner. Mr. Conner is scheduled to be executed on July 14 and I am deeply troubled that Georgia might proceed with this execution. Again, please urge your parole board to grant John Conner clemency. Thank you.

Governor Nathan Deal
