Body Copy

Dear ______,

Please join us in the effort to stop Oklahoma from executing an innocent man this year. 

It’s one of the most controversial death penalty cases in America. Richard Glossip is an innocent man who has been on Oklahoma’s death row for 24 years, even though everyone agrees it was another man who actually committed and admitted to the murder of Barry Van Treese. 

Glossip’s conviction–for allegedly ordering this murder–was based primarily on statements made by the actual, admitted killer, Justin Sneed. Now, while Sneed serves a life sentence in a medium-security prison, Glossip’s execution date may be fast approaching. But new evidence increasingly shows the killing was a botched robbery carried out by Sneed and a female accomplice, and Richard Glossip wasn’t involved.

Please join thousands of Oklahomans in signing the petition calling on Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt and the State Pardon and Parole Board to order a new investigation into this evidence before Oklahoma executes an innocent man.

This critical new evidence comes from 29 new witnesses and experts who have signed affidavits and are ready to testify on Glossip’s behalf. This evidence must be heard. 

Please join the growing effort to save Richard Glossip by signing the petition calling for an independent investigation into new evidence in Richard’s case today.

Thousands of Oklahomans have already signed the petition. And they are joined by 34 Oklahoma state legislators–including 28 Republicans–who are calling on Governor Stitt and the Pardon and Parole Board to order this new investigation. 

Please add your name to this petition now. And while you’re at it, please also follow the campaign to save Richard Glossip on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, and help spread the word.

Thanks for your support. Together we can save Richard Glossip.
