Watch live: A celebration of Troy’s life

 

 

 

Tomorrow, we celebrate the life of Troy Davis.

Thousands of his supporters and loved ones will gather at Jonesville Baptist Church in Savannah, Georgia, to honor the spirit and legacy of a man who has galvanized a global movement for justice.

We would like you to join us, too.

To accommodate the worldwide demand to mark this moment together, as a global community, Troy’s family has generously allowed his funeral to be broadcast live on www.NAACP.org.

Beginning at 11 a.m. tomorrow, you will be able to share the experience with the Davis family and Troy’s supporters and loved ones around the world.

Troy Davis: A Celebration of Life

Even in the face of death Troy understood how his story could change this country forever. In the days and weeks ahead, we will work to ensure that Troy’s mission is carried out, and the brutal practice of the death penalty is abolished in this country once and for all.

Troy’s story has touched each of our lives. Please join us tomorrow as we stand alongside his family in this time of reflection and remembrance.

Sincerely yours,

Benjamin Todd Jealous
President and CEO
NAACP
