The folks who were most closely involved with advocating for Troy Davis are now raising money so that his family can give him the funeral they feel he deserves. I still find it almost unfathomable that the State of Georgia actually killed him. It just seems almost literally unimaginable to me. But of course his family will now face the reality and nature of his death every day from here and unto eternity. If you would like to contribute to Mr. Davis’s funeral, please write to my friend Jen Marlowe at firstname.lastname@example.org, tell her who sent you, and she’ll set you up.
If you’d like to take action to continue the fight against the death penalty in Mr. Davis’s name but don’t know where to start, you can click here for my thoughts and ideas, and here for those of Peter Rothberg, Associate Publisher of The Nation. I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating: The only way for Troy Davis to continue his struggle for justice is for us to carry his spirit in our hands. It’s on us now. We are Troy Davis.
