Hank Skinner was set to be executed March 24 in Texas for a crime he says he didn't commit, even though DNA evidence that could prove his guilt or innocence has never been tested. Fortunately, just minutes before his death, the Supreme Court issued a stay of his execution, saying they wanted more time to consider his case. Congratulations to the nearly 7,000 Change.org members who helped build pressure on his case!

Fortunately, just minutes before his death, the Supreme Court issued a stay of his execution, saying they wanted more time to consider his case. Now it's key that we keep the pressure up. Use the form below to urge Texas Gov. Rick Perry to support a stay of executions so DNA testing can proceed.
