Ask friends to meet up. Ask your family to fast Wednesday evening in solidarity with Troys family and use the dinner hour to talk. Ask your faith community, if they already have a Wednesday night fellowship planned, to make time for conversation about Troys scheduled execution.

However you do it, please mark the 7 oclock hour on that eveningthe time of Troys scheduled executionas a moment to reflect on Troys experience, to offer prayers for his family and that of Officer MacPhail, and to talk about what we can each do to ensure our nation never does this again.

This is a moment to rededicate ourselves to the struggle to end the death penalty and otherwise fix our nations broken justice system.

To honor Troys courage, and rededicate ourselves to the cause of justice in America, NAACP activists are asked to fast Wednesday evening. Will you join us and meet on the capitol steps at 5:30 p.m. tonight?
