    Picket the Bastrop County DA and Demand Justice for Rodney Reed!

    Monday, February 24 at 11am

    Bastrop County Courthouse, 804 Pecan St., Bastrop, TX

    The Reed family is asking Rodney's supporters to join in a picket at the Bastrop County Courthouse during regular business hours.

    Bastrop's former DA, Charles Pennick, oversaw the trial and conviction of Rodney Reed - and was responsible for the prosecutorial misconduct that took place during the trial, including withholding of evidence, suppression of witnesses, and the misinterpretation of physical evidence.

    Let's send a message to the current DA, Bryan Goertz, that it's time for Bastrop County to do the right thing! Grant a new trial for Rodney Reed or rescind the charges!

    Send us a message if you want to join in a carpool from Austin - and don't forget the State Vs. Reed film screening the same evening at 6:30.

    State vs. Reed: A documentary film screening

    Monday, February 24 at 6:30pm

    Carver Library, 1161 Angelina St., Austin

    Case updates and organizing discussion to follow the movie. Featuring Sandra Reed, mother of Rodney and Rodrick Reed, brother of Rodney.

    Texas death row prisoner Rodney Reed was recently denied his appeal to the federal 5th Circuit Court of Appeals. If the court maintains it's ruling, this opens the door to a potential execution date to be set by Texas.

    The court had in front of it the entirety of the evidence collected over the years that proved Rodney's innocence - including new testimony from the orignal medical examiner regarding the forensic evidence that could help to exonerate him. Unfortunately they chose to dismiss this evidence.

    Rodney Reed is innocent - his execution would be a travesty of justice! Join the CEDP and family and supporters of Rodney Reed for this documentary film screening about the case. This 2006 documentary directed by Ryan Polomski and Frank Bustoz details the myriad problems in the conviction of Rodney.

    The time is now to get involved in the campaign to win JUSTICE FOR RODNEY REED!
