Quintin Jones Is Not Innocent. But He Doesn’t Deserve to Die.
Quintin Jones was sentenced to death for the murder of his Great Aunt in 1999, committed when he was under the influence of drugs. His family has forgiven him and opposes the execution. This opinion piece is written by Suleika Jaouad, who shares written correspondence and friendship with Quintin. She makes the case for his character, in a beautiful call for his life to be saved. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/05/10/opinion/quintin-jones-texas-death-row-clemency.html

Thank you for posting. The execution is scheduled for Wednesday — anyone inclined to help can contact Texas Governor Greg Abbott to urge him to approve Quin’s clemency petition here: https://gov.texas.gov/contact/
I’ve also got Quin’s contact info if anyone would like to send him an emailed message of support and uplift in what could be, though hopefully aren’t, his final days; please feel free to reach out to me if you’d like to write. Emails can apparently take up to 48 hours to arrive, so today would be the day. _/\_
Thank you for sharing, Kate! I called and left a message at the end of last week. I think I am a bit too late to be able to write to him- but my heart breaks for this decision and lack of action by the state of Texas and Governor Abbott.
