We cannot create justice without getting close to places where injustices prevail. We have to get proximate.”Bryan Stevenson
People directly affected by murder and the death penalty are not just important to our movement; they are the key voices that will help end the death penalty in North Carolina. It’s because of that belief that we are committed to sharing their stories in their own words. This page includes the stories of those who have lost loved ones to murder, those who have family members on death row, and those who work directly with people facing execution. We will continue to expand this story collection. Please get in touch if you know a story we should tell.
