On August 10, 2020 at 11AM, the Georgia chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Georgia), the Imam Jamil Action Network (IJAN), and the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), and other community advocates, with host a press conference outside the Fulton County Courthouse. The purpose of the press conference is to call for each Fulton County District Attorney candidate to commit to reopening Imam Jamil Al-Amin’s (H. Rap Brown) case.
Alhamdulillah though, we've been afforded yet another opportunity and this time, we aren't even asking you to decide his guilt or innocence though it should be obvious, we are only asking that you help him get the opportunity to prove his innocence to you and salvage his name. A fair trial, where the man who confessed to this crime actually testifies, where constitutional rights are respected and where the state prosecutors misconduct is not overlooked and subsequently rewarded with a federal judgeship. No, we want a fair trial...that's all.
That being said, if you can get behind the idea of Imam Jamil or anyone for that matter finally receiving a fair opportunity to prove their innocence, then please, sign and share our petition.
We must let District Attorney Paul Howard and The Fulton County Conviction Integrity Unit know that we are paying attention and we demand fairness and justice at the very least.
