Amnesty International's annual national conference, held in Boston this year, begins today and continues through the weekend. MVFHR Director Renny Cushing will participate in a panel titled "Stories from the Trenches: personal narratives from the Abolition Movement," along with Florida death row exoneree Juan Melendez and Chad Stokes, lead singer of State Radio, who has been advocating on behalf of death row inmate Troy Davis.

I am in DC attending the annual Psychotherapy Networker Symposium where, among other things, I will be meeting with people involved with issues of mental illness and the family. I hope to connect with some potential allies for our Prevention, Not Execution project.
