From Anna who is working hard in South Carolina to end the Death Penalty:
I've not heard that the canvassing in Savannah to encourage D.A. Chisolm to reopen the case is called off, and I don't think it should be. Please contact me if you can come to Savannah with us on Saturday, August 29!

I have some amazing news to report! In an extremely rare order issued during their summer recess, the US Supreme Court today ordered a new hearing for Troy Davis! The court ordered a federal judge in Georgia to hear evidence (finally!!) and evaluate Davis' claims of innocence. This is what we've been fighting for, folks! More details to come soon!
Here's the legal info: here
Thanks to everyone for all your amazing work, our efforts are really
With Tremendous Joy,
