Terri Steinberg: She was your average "mom," coaching, cheerleading, and driving a minivan. She was taught to respect life and believed that meant all life. She had never given the death penalty much thought because it did not make any sense to kill another human being. And like most, she also did nothing about it. That was then.

Emma facilitates relationship building between the larger death penalty movement and Catholic Church leadership.
