We are off to Louisville, Kentucky today for the annual conference of the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty. We look forward to seeing MVFHR members and colleagues from all over and to re-igniting our commitment and inspiration to carry on with the work that we're all engaged in.
Kentucky is one of the states considering a bill that would exempt people with severe mental illness from the death penalty, and a brief clip about MVFHR's work in this area should air on several Kentucky news stations today. I'll try to post it here as soon as I get a link. Meanwhile, if you're in the area, keep an ear out for it.
