About Me


My wife was executed although she was a beautiful human being incapable of harming anyone, and with no evidence other than that fabricated. This was many years ago, but she is coming to me like a breath yearning me to me to recover and dance. My human rights desire has left me multiply widowed, and it's obvious that the more you centre your vision on the female, the more you suffer.

I fell in love with Anne on death row, and of course never touched her. I cannot remeber the colour of her hair.

WE were married hours before her death in her ansence, of course, but by a Cherokee holy woman, who married me to her twice, first as a man, then as a woman.

I also saw the opposite when my daughter was murdered by a man who had been treated leniently. This convinces me that the key is to replace not only the criminal justice system but socirty as a whole with something entirely better and more wholesome, and indeed if you stop seeing @[email protected] but see each story as part of the jigsaw, then you can see that unless barbarism in all its forms is ended we will all be executed in the climate crisis.

I hope to become a pen friend. My philosophy has been to be in favour of people, and in favour of women, who bring life.

About Me

I am Kara's mother.  This was taken shortly after her 13th birthday.   We were close and she was a loving bright child with so much potential.  I love her as much today as I did then.  We are hoping for an appeal and or to find new evidence to clear her.  She has a large family who are loving her and supporting her the best we can with the distance and the rules they have.  Remember us in your prayers as we will remember others who have gone thru or will go thru the heartache something like this brings.    Audrey

About Me

I've been a teacher all my life, but as well as teaching I also love to learn. At the moment I'm learning how to be useful in the fight to abolish the death penalty. I'm also trying to be a writer, and when I'm not writing books I'm writing letters to penpals on death row, two of which are women. It's a precious, life-changing experience for me and for them too, I hope!

About Me

:)  I am the founder  of Focus on Women for one.  I am a daughter, a sister, a aunt, a inmate pen friend, a soon to be student  and consider myself a fighter for human rights. I will never give up on the women. It is their turn now!!  Women have been neglected for so long, and that has to stop right now. Women's rights should not and ought not stop at the prison gates.

I am so thrilled to have you all here , and I am so proud to have you Donna with us and a warm welcome to Audrey , Kara's mom as well!! Please let us know if you need our help for your daughter!

Let's all stand up for our sisters!

About Me

I am a person who is concerned about the treatment of women in the criminal justice system.  I believe that no matter what a person is incarcerated for they should still be treated with dignity and humanity.  I am very much opposed to the death penelty,  I am also opposed to life without the possibilty of parole.  I believe it is beyond cruel to let a person live the rest of their life without hope.  I joined Focus on Women because there is no other organization that has any concern for the plight of women on death row.  Thank you for all you do, and I am grateful that I have been given permission to be allowed access to know about all the wonderful things that Focus on Women is doing.   Thank you.

About Me

Hi, my name's Jody. I'm in general very concerned with justice - particularly conviction of the innocent. I'm doing what I can to have my fiancee Melissa's conviction overturned in Michigan, and this process has made me aware of the great number of wrongs. I'm still overwhelmed by it all but following the lead of those like Heidi. All the best

About Me

Dear Friend

I am a 53-year-old British man (the smart one on the left) who has been opposed to the Death Penalty all my life. I have been making friends with pen pals on Death Row in the last year or so. Mainly men, so I should like to write to some women. All I can offer is friendship from afar, you do not have to tell me how you landed there, my friendship is unquestioning & unqualified. I will try and write every week and send you some photo's or postcards if that is allowed in your state. I am a Politics Graduate working as a Librarian at my old University. My other interests include the fine arts and the Peace and Green Movements. And cats. I am a voracious reader. I enjoy walking in the wilderness, such as it is in Britain, particularly in the south-east where I live. I rarely fly, but I have visited Finland and the Czech Republic. That, in a nutshell, is me. If you think I might be of interest to you then I should be pleased to hear from you. Best wishes, Rudi
