Images of abolition work

Gail Rice gave us some great photos of the Illinois repeal effort. Here, Gail (second from left) and Cathy Crino pose with Jeremy Schroeder (far right), director of the Illinois Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty, and Senator Kwame Raoul, sponor of the Senate Bill, just after the Senate vote last week. As victims' family members, both Gail and Cathy were actively involved in the effort to pass this repeal legislation.

And here, Gail, Cathy, Jeremy, and Randy Steidl are on their way to deliver cards to Governor Quinn's office from people asking him to sign the legislation. Randy, who was the 18th person to be exonerated from Ilinois' death row since 1977, has been absolutely central to the repeal effort.
