People on the ‘Outside’ Benefit

Posted by Nancy Mullane on July 24th, 2012

Fabulous book launch last week…we are really proud of you! Vanessa and I will share the one book we got and thank you for your generosity as we could not afford to buy a copy at this time. We are trying to launch and secure funding for Life Support Alliance and the California Lifer Newsletter.
I was so impressed by all who attended the book launch, and the Lifers — ex-Lifers — that is and their ability to articulate with such eloquence. I am struck by how so many people on the ‘outside’ could benefit from such trials and challenges of our inner souls.
Impressive…and a very moving evening well-orchestrated.
Great photography. I love the large images.
Enjoyed especially speaking with Don Cronk. He and my husband were good friends at San Quentin. Thank you and congratulations on your work coming to fruition!

Life After Murder challenges us to do the unthinkable in the era of mass incarceration – view those accused of heinous crimes as worthy of our care, compassion and concern. Nancy Mullane, a white woman who once was just as ignorant about the real world of crime and punishment as the typical television viewer, takes us on a remarkable journey behind bars and introduces us to five unforgettable men who are struggling to transform their lives. Through their stories we are reminded of the power and possibility of redemption, as well the nearly unforgiveable crime our nation has committed: treating some human beings as disposable.



“Life After Murder is a gripping behind the scenes look at men who have committed heinous crimes yet still challenge our humanity by asking us to truly consider the meaning of redemption. This is journalism at its finest and a must-read for anyone interested in the realities of our prison system.”

–TOM AMMIANO, California Assembly Member
