Mission

MVFR is a community led by family members of murder victims and the executed that advocates for the repeal of the death penalty.

Understanding that victim families are on a spectrum of recovery, MVFR identifies, engages and mobilizes its members to build communities of support that educate the public on the harms of the death penalty, the true needs of the victim's families and the transformative power of restorative justice to promote a more compassionate and just society.

MVFR works with a variety of individuals and organizations that share our commitments to build a safer society and heal the damage caused by violence.
