Free Rodney Reed joins in MLK Day parades in Houston and Austin

Activists in both Houston and Austin joined the parade festivities celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on Monday, Jan. 19. We collected petition signatures and added some beautiful faces to our #Justice4Rodney Instagram pics. You can add your own solidarity photo by following #Justice4Rodney and tagging your picture! Honor the legacy of Dr. King by joining the fight for Rodney’s life!
