A Note from Bill Pelke: Take the Pledge!


Hello friends:

As President of the Journey of Hope...from Violence to Healing I ask everyone one our supporters to take the Troy Davis pledge. I thank God for the leadership Ben Jealous has shown us in moving forward to keep his promises to Troy. Listen to what Ben is saying to us.

"Last week, the country watched as a man was executed in a case where there was too much doubt.

Troy Davis was... convicted of murdering a white police officer over 20 years ago. No murder weapon was ever found, no DNA evidence linked Troy to the crime, and seven of the nine witnesses who testified recanted their statements.

Join me in pledging to end the death penalty in the United States:

If one innocent person can be killed under the death penalty, I cannot support it. Last week, Troy Davis’ death was a horrific tragedy and I wanted to do whatever I could to stop the injustice. Right now the NAACP is giving people a way to unite under a pledge that works to end the death penalty.
Join me in fighting today.'

Ben Jealous wants us to unite under this pledge and I fully support him. Thank you NAACP for taking such a gallant stand.

The Journey of Hope…from Violence to Healing applauds you. We offer our assistance in the fight with our weapons of Love and compassion.
We are Troy Davis,

Love and Peace,


See More: On Saturday, October 1st, Troy Anthony Davis will be laid to rest in Savannah, Georgia. Please join the NAACP in sending a message of condolence and support to the Davis family. We will personally deliver your messages to family members this week...NAACP (Look for a message or Comment here or on the Journey of Hope FB wall as to who to send this message of condolence.)
