MVFHR's Spring/Summer newsletter is in the mail and also available online. In it you'll find
* An interview with Jeffrey Dion, who was 14 years old when his sister, Paulette, was murdered by a serial killer. Jeff talks about how this tragedy affected him as a child and how it informs his work as a victim advocate. He also discusses how the death penalty abolition movement is viewed by the organized victims' community.
* Testimony from victims' families against the death penalty in Lebanon
* Kate Lowenstein writing about the courage it takes for victims to speak publicly, and how the abolition movement can support victims as speakers
* And our usual roundup of victim opposition to the death penalty in the news, testimony from our members, and updates about MVFHR's work around the world.
