Let's #clearGarvey - Time running out to sign White House petition

Published:Tuesday | September 27, 2016 | 9:38 PM

There are only two days left for persons to sign a petition on the White House We the People website,  aimed at starting the process of clearing the name of National Hero Marcus Garvey.

In 1923, Garvey was convicted of mail fraud in the United States.

As of today, 14,341 persons signed the petition entitled Grant Marcus Mosiah Garvey a Posthumous Presidential Pardon of His Wrongful 1923 Conviction.

However 100,000 signatures are needed within 30 days for the White House to take up the issue after which the White House will have up to 60 days to respond.

Readers are encouraged to log on to the We the People website by clicking the link below and signing the petition.
