Meet the woman behind all our communications – Bridget Maloney, who serves as FADP’s Communications Coordinator. Her primary role is to connect and engage with you – through our website, social media platforms, newsletter, email, Zoom, or in person. Bridget ensures that our action items and materials are easily accessible to you.
Here’s what Bridget has to say:
I am an abolitionist. I am also a sociologist, a biologist, and a law student.
I am also a human (my biology degree has served me well). So is every single person on Florida’s death row; every victim and victims’ family member; every attorney, warden, guard, and all of you.
I am inspired to meet with many of you who have been working to end the death penalty in Florida. That’s precisely why I love what I do; you are not only what makes my job possible, but you are what makes ending Florida’s death penalty possible.
FADP had the honor of sponsoring and attending NAMI Florida’s Annual Conference, You Are Not Alone, in Orlando last month. Bridget and Board Members Roger Weeden, Rachel Newman, and Herman Lindsey hosted a table where we debuted our brand new SMI Alliance materials – everyone loves buttons and stickers!
Importantly, we met many people who bravely shared their stories. This conference allowed us to hear from those directly impacted by mental illness and affirms why we must remain committed to passing legislation to protect people with serious mental illness from the death penalty.
The new SMI Alliance swag isn’t all we brought with us. Notice anything new at the top of this email?
FADP has a new look! Check out the changes on our website and social media, and stay tuned for more exciting news about the SMI Bill!
