Amplify Values In These Emerging Issues

Rodney Reed case: Push Back Against the Death Penalty

Late last week, an appeals court indefinitely suspended the execution of Rodney Reed in Texas. Reed was scheduled to be executed today for the murder of a woman 23 years ago. Recent evidence has come to light that supports Reed’s claims of innocence, and several celebrities have called for his case to be reopened. Support Reed’s legal case as part of the movement against capital punishment. Next month, the federal government is scheduled to restart executions after nearly 20 years. Activists are organizing against this policy change and need support. Cite the values of Redemption and Community in your messaging.
