You can help these women by offering your friendship, signing petitions or by donating to their defense. There are many indigent prisoners, who have to rely on donations from the public , in order to provide themselves with what you would call a proper defense or appeals. Have a look at the websites listed here. You can also donate to the many innocence networks, which do tremendous work for almost nothing. These Networks are driven by Law Students and their teachers. Needless to say, they are amazing, starting off with the worse cases they could ever take on, at the worse timing.
You could also join the coalitions linked on this page, in an effort to build a stronger network system for fighting injustice. Students can gather and make Students against the Death Penalty a even bigger and powerful anti Death Penalty Group. Please have a look at their website linked to this website at the Links page!
URGENT !! URGENT!! 5/6/2010 (Focus on Women: yes please help , Linda faces a date of death any day now and is in serious danger: http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2010/jun/27/linda-carty-death-row-texas )
Please help Linda and her lawyers from REPRIEVE UK save her life! For those who still do not know, the US Supreme Court has rejected her case and this was her last appeal. As such, the state of Texas is now free to set a date for her. This campaign is her last hope! So please join us.
DIRECTIONS FROM REPRIEVE:
[PLEASE SEND LETTER TO REPRIEVE AT PO BOX 52742, LONDON, UK EC4P 4WS, WHO WILL FORWARD IT TO GOVERNOR PERRY]

Dear Governor Perry
I write to express my deep concern for British Grandmother Linda Carty, who is facing execution in Texas.
[Add personal message to Governor Perry explaining why he should not execute Linda]
I am pleading for her life to be spared, and my heart is with her family at this terrible time. Linda's death would destroy her child, her grandchildren and the rest of her family. I know that you care deeply about family and I would like to join Linda's daughter in begging for mercy for her mother. It would be also a very sad loss for the British people.
This is a case, about humanity and compassion -- values that we share with Texas. My plea to you is based on the greatest respect for Texas and those shared values.
Please share widely
