My Friend,

I am so proud of you for taking the step you took to help save the life of Rodney Reed. But can I be brutally honest with you? Clicks, tweets, and angry face emojis won’t save Rodney. Even our viral petition won’t save him.

On November 20th, Rodney Reed is scheduled to be executed by the State of Texas, and we need to persuade Governor Greg Abbott, the Board of Pardons and Paroles, the Bastrop County District Attorney Brian Goertz, and other conservative elected officials to stay this execution, review all of the evidence that exonerates Rodney, and eventually grant him a new trial. 

It’s in their hands, but they have to know how much we care. 

That’s why I am asking you to take these ACTION STEPS with me right now. 

I need you to call and email ALL of the following people. If you’ve never done this work with me before, we’re kind and respectful when we call. Be firm and thorough. Be persistent, but be kind. People are more apt to respond to kindness than they will anger. Leave a message if you have to. Ask to be transferred to someone else if nobody is available. 

And when you call, let them know that you are calling to advocate on behalf of Rodney Reed, an innocent man who has been wrongly convicted and sentenced to death on November 20th. 

Go back to if you need to familiarize yourself with the facts of the case, ok?

I believe in you!! I want you to speak in your own words. I don’t provide scripts because I want your emails and phone calls to be natural, ok?

Start RIGHT NOW and start again tomorrow morning, OK? THIS IS AN EMERGENCY. 

We just launched a call tool so you can tell decision-makers personally to save Rodney Reed from being executed. When you click on this tool, I’m going to talk you through everything, ok?
