Bringing Victims' Voices to the Forefront in Nebraska
Nebraskans for Alternatives to the Death Penalty was honored to have national board members from Murder Victims’ Families for Reconciliation in Omaha to conduct a training and workshop for victims' families in Nebraska. The training was held at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Downtown Omaha and brought together 13 MVFR staff and board members from around the country with a group of local victims' family members and NADP organizers.
During the day-long workshop, there were trainings on Making and Sustaining Connections with Family Members, Telling You Story Effectively, Working with the Media, and Legislative and Policy Work. Each of the interactive sessions offered an opportunity for the individuals in attendance to hear the extraordinary stories of pain and courage from other victims' families and to develop some of the skills that they hope to put to use in the ongoing efforts to end the death penalty in Nebraska.
NADP would like to thank Beth Wood, Acting Executive Director at MVFR, all of the amazing MVFR board members, and everyone who attended from Nebraska for making this event a success.
