Tennessee Governor Bill Lee

6e3a3665

Tennessee has set an execution date of August 4th, 2020 for Harold Nichols, who was convicted and sentenced to death for the 1988 murder of Karen Pulley.

While most states are turning away from the death penalty or using it rarely, this will be the eighth execution to occur in Tennessee in the last 2 years.

Please sign the petition asking Governor Lee to do everything within his power to stop this execution, including issuing a stay, and seeking a path to clemency in the case.

Petitions will be delivered on your behalf at 12:00 pm noon Eastern Time on Monday, August 3rd.

We are writing to ask that you to stop the August 4th execution of Harold Nichols, who was convicted and sentenced to death for the 1988 murder of Karen Pulley.

We are concerned that while the vast majority of states with capital punishment continue on a downward trend of executions, Tennessee has continued to go against trend by carrying on an aggressive execution schedule.

We, the undersigned, ask that you do everything within your power to stop this execution, including issuing a stay, and seeking a path to clemency in the case.

We also add our voices to those of the prisoners on death row and urge you to respond to their request that you visit and pray with them.

Thank you for your time and attention to this very urgent and serious matter.
