Act to Help Ivan Cantu

Things you can do

Contact District Attorney Willis

District attorneys have discretionary power not to seek the death penalty in any case.

We have created an email you can sign and send to District Attorney Willis and the Collin County Conviction Integrity Unit asking for a halt to the execution and a full review of the new evidence.

All you need to do is:

  1. Click the button below to open a pre-filled email to DA Willis.
  2. Feel free to add your own words or edit the text completely – making the email personal will have a greater impact.
  3. If you live in Texas, mention that in your email, especially so if you live in Dallas or Collin County.
  4. Make sure to add your name at the bottom of the email!
  5. Send your email.

Write your local newspaper

If you live in Dallas, Collin County or elsewhere in Texas, write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper(s).

We’ll be providing some bullet points you can use as seeds for your own letter (to come), or you can use the information you already have and write a letter from your heart.
