SEND A FAX to tell the Texas Board of Pardons and Parole to grant clemency to Napolean Beazley

SEND A FAX to tell the Texas Board of Pardons and Parole to grant clemency to Napolean Beazley.
The execution of juvenile offenders must be STOPPED!
Napoleon Beazley, a gifted 17-year-old African American honor student, was sentenced to death in Texas by an all-white jury for the murder of the father of a prominent Federal judge.

Despite troubling legal issues with his case and his age at the time of the crime he is scheduled to be executed on May 28. The United States now stands virtually alone in the world in continuing to execute juvenile offenders, and Texas far and away leads the United States, and the world, in this anachronistic and almost universally rejected practice.
The Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles has said that their vote on whether to grant Napoleon clemency will be held on Tuesday, May 28th, so keep sending faxes.
VIGIL FOR NAPOLEON!! Stop Executions of Juvenile Offenders!!
DATE: Tuesday, May 28th at 5:30pm.
LOCATION: Governor's Mansion (11th and Lavaca) Austin, Texas
