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 a firm anti-death penalty activist. I witnesses the horrible, cruel and unjust execution of my "bestest" friend, Greg Wright October 30, 2008. It left marks and scars that forever changed my life, for better and for worse. :( I co-wrote a book on his life, called "Texas, He WAS Innocent" in 2009.

 

I teach English at a private high school, and I teach my students through lectures on an annual basis. I lecture on other local schools, trying my own way to spread the word of abolition. I do, however, feel women on death row and women in general in prison, are in desperate need of extra attention. Thus, I will do what I can, when I have the time:-) PS..I am a Danish citizen, residing in Norway.

 

I support Heidi and ya all in this:-) :)

 

Best regards

Bente

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

This is my 'little' brother, Louis Castro Perez who is an innocent man on Texas' death row; and our dear friend, John Holbrook, who took the photos of many of the men on death row; conducted interviews with them; and has now shared their stories around the world. I just wanted to thank everyone so much for their work to help us abolish the death penalty in Texas and around the globe. There is still so much work to be done, but with all of us working together, the way we do, I know that someday soon, we will attain our lofty goals !! God Bless each and every one of you!! xoxoxoxo dm

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.
