“We know that there are many inequities in how the states apply the death penalty. Therefore I believe MVFHR must focus on abolition in the context of its being a human rights issue and work hard to bring the world community of murder victims together to oppose the death sentence in the U.S."

Vicki Schieber, mother of Shannon Shieber, murdered in 1998.
