Thank you to all who have canvassed for Troy Davis in Atlanta and Savannah over the past couple of weeks.


We are well on our way to reaching our goal of collecting 10,000 signatures in Savannah, but we still need your help. We will be going out in teams to talk with folks about the case and collect signatures. We will equip you with everything you need to confidently do this, but most of all we are seeking a dynamic group who can really commit their weekend to working on behalf of Troy Davis. 


Please mark your calendars for the weekends of June 11-12 and June 17-18 for the next trips to Savannah. If you're able to join us for one of both of these weekends, please email info@gfadp.org by Friday, June 3.


Costs:  We will cover your lodging (Fri-Sun nights), transportation expenses (e.g. gas money) and meals (Sat-Mon). Also, please indicate if you can come to Savannah on Friday night and if not, when on Saturday you will arrive.


In the meantime, we really need help with the following:

1) Amass petitions on Troy Davis’ behalf
-spread the online petition

-print out and collect the hardcopy petition (return them to the address on the petition form)

2) Send these sign-on letters to your contacts
