Brandon Rhode is scheduled to be executed on Tuesday, September 21, 2010 at 7 pm.  In response, please send a letter by mail or fax to the State Board of Pardons and Paroles asking the Board to commute Mr. Rhode’s sentence to life, as well as a letter to Rainbow Medical Associates -- the medical team that assists with Georgia's executions -- asking them to spare Brandon's life.  These two groups, the Parole Board and the execution team, are Mr. Rhode's last hopes of avoiding death at the hands of the state.

Mr. Rhode's hearing at the Parole Board is Friday morning, 9/17/10, so please send these letters out ASAP to ensure the Parole Board receives as many as possible before considering Mr. Rhode's clemency. 

Please download these sample letters, one for the Parole Board and one for Rainbow Medical Associates:
