Catholic Mobilizing Network calls on all people of goodwill to oppose this action. Advocate for clemency for Billy Ray Irick can send a letter to the Tennessee Board of Parole, which makes recommendations for clemency to Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam.  Personalize this one-click letter to advocate for him.  You are welcome and encouraged to customize the letter.
