Tell Governor Lee: Stop the Execution of Oscar Smith

As Tennesseans of many faith traditions celebrate their holy seasons this spring, the State of Tennessee prepares to resume executions. Oscar Smith is scheduled to be executed on April 21, 2022, with four other scheduled executions to follow this year.

Mr. Smith has been on Tennessee’s death row since 1990 and is the oldest person on Tennessee’s death row, having just celebrated his 72nd birthday in March.

TADP has created an easy way for you to send a letter to Governor Lee, asking him to grant clemency, or at least a temporary reprieve, in order for the courts to address critical legal issues in Mr. Smith’s case.

You can send a letter to Governor Lee here.
