Richard Glossip is innocent

Richard Glossip is fighting for his life. I firmly believe, as do so many others in Oklahoma and across the country, that Richard is innocent of the crime that sent him to Oklahoma’s death row.

I encourage you to learn the facts about Richard’s story. I also urge you to visit the Richard Glossip website for additional information and media coverage from around the world about Richard’s innocence.

Currently, all executions in Oklahoma have been put on hold because the state has repeatedly botched its lethal injection protocol. But state officials are moving as fast as they can to resume executions. Please follow me on Facebook so that you will know immediately if Richard needs your voice raised to help him live.
