In Chicago

MVFHR staff and board members are in Chicago this weekend, participating in the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty's annual conference and celebrating the recent passage of the death penalty repeal bill here in Illinois. We welcome this annual opportunity to spend time with members and colleagues from around the U.S.

Several MVFHR members are speakers on panels and workshops throughout the conference, and our board Chair Vicki Schieber will be honored tomorrow night as Abolitionist of the Year. We'll have a fuller report on the conference soon.
