Join us at Checkered Past to drink wine (happy hour prices) and write clemency letters for Rodney Reed, an innocent man on death row, with an execution date scheduled for November 20, 2019. We will be writing to Governor Greg Abbott asking him to grant clemency to Rodney. Please scroll below for a sample letter.

Rodney Reed, who maintains his innocence, has been on death row for the past 21 years for the murder of Stacey Stites in Bastrop, Texas. Reed is scheduled for execution on November 20, 2019, despite an enormous amount of evidence that supports his innocence.

Here are some of MANY sources including the facts of the case as well as voices who have spoken out against the execution, including the Innocence Project, Dr. Phil, Oprah, Mark Cuban, Kim Kardashian, and Filmmakers for Justice:

sample clemency letter:

“It is clear to anyone who looks at the evidence in this case that, quite simply, Mr. Reed did not sexually assault or murder Stacey Stites that night in 1996,” says Bryce Benjet, a senior staff attorney at the Innocence Project. “Medical and scientific evidence confirm this and multiple new and credible witnesses not only confirm Reed’s intimate relationship with Stites, but also implicate Fennell in her murder. If the great state of Texas puts Mr. Reed to death, it will be a miscarriage of justice that will destroy even more innocent lives in this case and do irreparable damage to public confidence in the accuracy and fairness of the criminal justice system in Texas.”
