Radio Interview

MVFHR board member member and Journey of Hope co-founder Bill Pelke was interviewed on the radio show The Path to Justice earlier this week. In the interview, which lasts for about 40 minutes, Bill talks about his grandmother's murder, his initial support for the death penalty, his experience of changing his mind, and his eventual work against the death penalty, including, specifically, his involvement in the campaign to save the life of Paula Cooper, who had been one of the four teenagers responsible for the murder of Bill's grandmother and who became the youngest woman to be sentenced to death in the U.S. (Her sentence was subsequently reduced to 60 years in prison.)
