Day of Remembrance: Troy Davis Lives

September 26, 2011

The state of Georgia shocked the world when it took Troy Davis’ life last Wednesday. But in the wake of that outrage, the movement to end the death penalty has only grown in numbers and energy.

We have heard innumerable stories of consciousness raising and transformation. People did not go home from the various protests despondent. Like us, they have committed to not forgetting what happened and are emboldened, redoubling efforts to end the callous system that has demonstrated it has no business taking human life.

On Saturday, October 1, join us for a Day of Remembrance.

Join us in Savannah for Troy Davis’ funeral. The service is open to the public, but media cameras will not be permitted:

October 1, 11am
“Celebration of Life Service”
Jonesville Baptist Church
5201 Montgomery St., Savannah, Georgia

For those of you who cannot make it to Savannah, please wear an “I am Troy Davis” t-shirt or black armband with “Not in my name” written on it and change your Facebook profile picture to this image:

Those wishing to send cards or donations to the Davis family:
