Troy Davis's nephew college fund

Organized by: Jen Marlowe

THE STORY:

Troy Davis (an innocent man on Georgia's death row executed in Sept 2011) wanted more than anything for his nephew De'Jaun to achieve his educational dream.

In the fall of 2013, De'Jaun took his first steps towards that dream by beginning Morehouse College, pursuing a dual degree in engineering and physics (and making Dean's List several semesters while he's at it!) De'Jaun co-founded and is running Morehouse's Makerspace Lab.

De'Jaun's ability to attend Morehouse is enabled by the generosity and solidarity of scores of supporters who believe in this young man and want to ensure he's able to build the future he deserves.

Now it's time to raise tuition for De'Jaun's senior year at Morehouse!

Whether you watched De'Jaun grow up as you worked side by side with his beloved mother Martina, were inspired by his speaking about his Uncle Troy's case at an NAACP or Amnesty International youth conference, or learned about his growing into a powerful activist from the book I Am Troy Davis--it is clear to all who have encountered De'Jaun that this phenomenal young man deserves our support.

We're trying to raise $25,000 for De'Jaun's senior year of college tuition---and we need your help to meet that goal!

The Impact is not just on De'Jaun alone! De'Jaun intends to use his engineering degree in ways that will have far-reaching impacts (for example--he spoke to me about his involvement in an organization called Green For All Engineering, through which he educates young students about "going green" and the importance of environmental safety through engineering.) He also plans to start technology and engineering labs in highschools, first in Georgia, then throughout the U.S. so that other youth have the chance to pursue dreams they may not otherwise think is possible.

If you can't make a donation at this time, here are some things you can do: 

--Make some noise about this campaign--use the CrowdRise share tools to spread the word on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!

--Email Jen Marlowe at donkeysaddle@gmail.com to ask her to let you know in the future when De'Jaun's tuition is due once again.

--Purchase an I Am Troy Davis T-shirt--proceeds go directly to De'Jaun's college fund! (Email Kimberly Davis at aug1970@bellsouth.net for more info)

--Purchase a copy of the book I Am Troy Davis and learn more about De'Jaun, his incredible family, and their ongoing fight to end the death penalty!
