MVFHR challenges the assumption that all families of murder victims support the death penalty and frames the death penalty as both a victims’ issue and a human rights issue. Through public education, advocacy, and organizing, we amplify the voices of victims’ families who oppose the death penalty and provide anti-death penalty campaigns with victims’ uniquely compelling testimony. As well, we draw attention to the ways in which the death penalty harms the families of those executed, and we seek to achieve recognition for these families as victims of traumatic loss.
