The execution of Troy Davis exposed once again how arbitrary, biased and error-prone the capital punishment system is, and how cruel and inhumane it will always be.
In Troy's name, I pledge to work for abolition.
Executions are always wrong because every human being has human rights.
In Troy's name, I pledge to fight to end executions.
I take this pledge to work for abolition of the death penalty because human rights and human lives are on the line.
In Troy's name, I pledge to "fight this fight."
THE DEATH PENALTY MUST BE ABOLISHED.
In Troy's memory, this I pledge.
On September 21, 2011, the state of Georgia shamefully executed Troy Davis despite serious doubts about his guilt. With his final words, Troy issued a call to continue to "fight this fight" against the wrongs that cost him his life. On the two-year anniversary of his execution, make a pledge in Troy's memory - together we can win the fight to abolish the death penalty.
Add your name today and on October 1, two years to the day since Troy’s family grieved at his funeral, we will deliver to his family your commitment to put an end to the death penalty once and for all.
