Justice for Julius
Julius Jones is on death row in Oklahoma despite compelling evidence that he was wrongfully convicted and that racial bias infected his case. Julius’ co-defendant, the key witness against him, fit the only eyewitness description of the shooter, while Julius did not. Yet, Julius’ underfunded and inexperienced public defenders failed to cross-examine this co-defendant about the six different and inconsistent statements he gave to the police after his arrest. They also failed to put on evidence showing that Julius’ co-defendant was likely the actual shooter and was testifying against Julius to avoid the death penalty. In exchange for his testimony against Julius, Julius’ co-defendant was released from prison after only 15 years on a 30-year sentence. Attorneys also failed to present to the jury powerful evidence from several eyewitnesses that places Julius at his parents’ home at the time of the murder. Julius deserves TRUE justice...NOW!

Contact the White House & DOJ to advocate for Mr. Higgs’ Life - Dustin killed no one
UPDATE: the United States executed Dustin Higgs.
Dustin Higgs was present for the murders of three women. He was sentenced to death, despite never killing anyone. The person who shot and killed the women was sentenced to life in prison. The killer signed an affidavit saying Dustin did not threaten or pressure him into killing the women. There are many things unjust about this case. The death penalty is barbaric, especially in a justice system like ours that is so warped. And especially when the person set to be executed DID NOT KILL ANYONE.
Please help save Mr. Higgs.

This execution will happen unless the Attorney General or the President step in to commute her sentence to life without the possibility of parole.

The death penalty is a barbaric punishment especially within a justice system that has serious issues.
