Not in my Name Pledge

To be delivered to Amnesty International USA

Petition Statement

The state of Georgia shamefully executed Troy Davis on September 21, 2011 despite serious doubts about his guilt.

But Not In My Name.

While a majority of the world – more than 65% of all countries – has abolished the death penalty in law or practice, the United States remains one of the top countries responsible for executing people.

Not In My Name.

Officials continue to allow this deeply-flawed, extremely arbitrary and severely-biased (both economically and racially) system to run rampant without checks, balances or concern for moral decency.

Not In My Name.

Guilty or innocent every person is a human being with human rights. Executions are always wrong.

I won't stand for it.

THE DEATH PENALTY MUST BE ABOLISHED. I take this pledge because human rights and human lives are on the line.
There are currently 62,674 signatures. NEW goal - We need 65,000 signatures!

Petition Background

The state of Georgia shamefully executed Troy Davis on September 21, 2011 despite serious doubts about his guilt. However, they cannot stop our struggle for all the Troy Davises of the world.

By signing the Not in my Name Pledge, we ask that you commit to working for death penalty abolition in your community, in your state, in your country and around the world.
