Urgent Action



EXECUTION SET FOR CRIME COMMITTED AT AGE 20

Kenneth Williams, aged 38, is due to be executed in Arkansas on 27 April for a
murder committed
during a prison escape in 1999. Twenty years old at the time, he asserts he is
not the same person
he was then, and can contribute to society if allowed to live.

Write a letter, send an email, call, fax or tweet:

* Calling for clemency for Kenneth Williams and for his death sentence to be
commuted;
* Explaining that you are not seeking to excuse violent crime or to minimize
the suffering caused;
* Pointing out that the death penalty denies the possibility of
rehabilitation and reform of
individuals, and does nothing to further our understanding of the roots of
and responses to
human violence.

Friendly reminder: If you send an email, please create your own instead of
