Bonnita Spikes, Murder Victims' Family Members Organizer
Bonnita Spikes has made it her life's work to stop capital punishment in Maryland and across the country. Using her skills as a former union organizer, Spikes brings people together to discuss the death penalty and rally against it. Spikes' own life was touched by violent crime in a heartbreaking way when her husband, Michael, was murdered in 1994 - nobody has ever been charged with the crime. Paying particular attention to Baltimore City, a Maryland jurisdiction dealing with the highest homicide rate in the state, Spikes reaches out to others who've lost loved ones in this most tragic of ways.
