I support DPF because I know that any money I contribute goes directly towards the fight to end the death penalty. My brother, Greg Wilhoit, spent five years on death row for a crime he did not commit. He was exonerated because of the tireless work of a public defender and the faith and determination of his family. DPF has given Greg an opportunity to share his story and draw attention to the terrible possibility that an innocent person could be executed.
