Help Us Save Others on Oklahoma's Death Row
Sep 7, 2022 —
You may have already seen this update. But as someone invested in the liberation of Julius Jones, an innocent Black man who you helped free from death row last year, we wanted to make sure you had an opportunity to learn what's happening in Oklahoma right now and take action.
Twenty five people have been set to be killed by the state. One person, James Coddington, was already killed two weeks ago despite the Oklahoma Parole and Pardon's board voting for clemency.
Governor Stitt ignored his own appointed Parole and Pardons board, and chose death instead!
The people scheduled for execution include cases with serious claims of innocence and racial bias, just like Julius’ case. Others include severe mental illness, intellectual disability, exorbitant childhood trauma and abuse. These cases reveal deep systemic flaws in Oklahoma’s capital punishment system and illustrate the egregious unfairness and cruelty of the death penalty in general.
But it's never too late. If enough people make noise, we can push Governor Stitt to issue a moratorium on the death penalty.
