My Brother’s Keeper

In her cover article for Pacific Standard, My Brother’s Keeper, writer Sabine Heinlein delves into the case of Jeff Wood and the advocacy of his sister, Terri Been. Although it is not a TAVP publication, the article includes quotes from TAVP founder, Walter Long; our newest board member Susannah Sheffer; and several of our narrators’ interviews. Heinlein takes a comprehensive look at the social and emotional effects of capital punishment, beginning with the experiences of one family member of a death-sentenced individual and moving outward to explore the broader societal impacts of the death penalty.
