New Resource Featuring the Voices of Kansas Murder Victims’ Families


Murder Victims’ Families for Reconciliation has partnered with KCADP on putting together a new resource sharing the personal stories of Kansas murder victims’ families and some of their concerns about the death penalty. In this booklet, murder victims’ families from across the state of Kansas share their own experiences of losing a loved one to murder and the ways that the death penalty fails as a response to such tragedy. Below is a link to this powerful resource.

Thank You!


We would like to thank all who participated in our Conservative Press Conference on Tuesday, March 17, 2015. We thank the speakers, the audience, and everyone who helped make the press conference a success.   Repealing death penalty is truly a non-partisan issue.  People of diverse political beliefs have all been raising their voices against the death penalty.


At our Faith Leaders press conference in February, religious leaders from several faith traditions called on us to do the morally right thing by repealing the death penalty.   As one of our conservative speakers, Jill Craven, said “We, as Kansans, have always been on the forefront of being bold in doing what is right. We would like to see the same boldness applied to this issue.”


Please continue spreading the facts about the death penalty and urging your elected officials to do the right thing by voting “Yes” for our repeal bill this legislative session.
