As you know,  we are pushing hard to get 10,000 petition signatures from Atlanta and another 10,000 from Savannah to present to the Board of Pardons and Paroles to ask for clemency for Troy Davis.

We need your help to get there!

Just a reminder that there are two volunteer opportunities this weekend in Atlanta to help collect signatures for Troy Davis.

1) Inman Park festival on Saturday, April 30.  Folks will gather at 12:30pm at the Inman Park MARTA station and break off from there.

2) May Day (Sunday, May 1) Rally at the capitol, from 10am-2:00pm.  The materials will be bilingual. 

If you are able to help out with one or both events please call Lisa Adler at 404.567.9451.

As a reminder, Tuesdays for Troy are happening every Tuesday from 5-7pm. We are out petitioning so please let me know if you're interested.

Please continue to:
