Bringing Back Tomorrow: St. Louisans Confront the Death Penalty

By Jon Krieg

Do our children have a future? If they don’t, do we?

These questions formed the heart of a September 29, 2010 community discussion organized by AFSC St. Louis and Missourians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty.

Five experts in criminal justice and youth shared their thoughts following the screening of “No Tomorrow,” a documentary film about the murder of a young woman, Risa Bejarano, who had “aged out” of foster care. The film covers the trial of the troubled young man, Juan Chavez, who was sentenced to death for her murder.
