Prevention, Not Execution Project
The Prevention, Not Execution Project is a collaborative effort between Murder Victims’ Families for Human Rights and the National Alliance on Mental Illness. The project aims to end the death penalty for people with severe mental illness by bringing together families of victims killed by people with severe mental illness and families of people with severe mental illness who have been executed.
