Today, I had the honor of meeting #RodneyReed in person and the privilege of sitting with him when he got the news that the highest court in Texas had issued a stay of execution and remanded the case back to the trial court for further consideration. Words cannot describe the relief and hope that swept over the room in that moment. That hope had been building over the last few weeks around Rodney’s case. We have seen Democrats and Republicans come together. We have seen grassroots activists and lawmakers link arms. We have heard people all around the globe speak up. And all because of a deep belief that every man or woman accused of a crime – especially one punishable by death – deserves the chance to have all available evidence considered. So grateful for the commitment and passion of everyone who voiced their support, the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles for their recommendation to issue a 120 day reprieve, and the courts for issuing a stay!

Tres millones de estadounidenses han firmado una petición para el rechazo de la pena de muerte por inyección letal que le esperaba en una prisión de Texas, mañana 20 de noviembre. Entre las personas que han firmado dicha petición están la modelo Gigi Hadid o la cantante de Barbados Rihanna.

Tras aplazarse la decisión, la junta rechazó la solicitud de modificación en la sentencia, por lo que, de no demostrar la inocencia, el hombre finalmente sería ejecutado.
