Join the Facebook group Todd Willingham – Innocent and Executed: Shout it from the Rooftops.

In addition to signing the petition, which we will deliver to Texas governor Rick Perry, please take a moment to contact Rick Perry and communicate with him directly by email, letter or by calling (512) 463-1782 and leaving a voice message.

Please contact Gov. Perry and urge him to acknowledge that Texas wrongfully executed an innocent person, Todd Willingham. Tell him to halt all executions because Texas has executed an innocent person. His office keeps count how many people contact him about issues, so it is important that you take a moment to contact him.

If you live in the U.S. you can send Perry an email by filling out the form on his website. If you live outside the U.S., you can also use the form, but his form is set up to only accept U.S. addresses, so you have to choose a U.S. state, such as TX, and then in the body of your letter, put your full actual address, including your actual country, so that he knows where you actually live.

You can send Perry a letter in the postal mail to the mailing address:

Office of the Governor
P.O. Box 12428
Austin, Texas 78711-2428
