FUSE (Families United to Share and Empower) Meeting

For most families, when a loved one dies, their communities provide needed care and support. However, for families whose loved one is executed or lives on death row, there is frequently no such outpouring. In fact, most of these families suffer in silence, rarely sharing the pain and feelings of isolation with which they struggle. This weekend TCASK held a gathering of FUSE (Families United to Share and Empower),a program TCASK is working to develop that hopes to provide support and resources for families of death row inmates and the executed.

A small group met to discuss the needs of families from the trial through the resolution of the case. Looking at the different perspectives concerning the death penalty system, two things are for certain: the families of those who are on death row are also caught up in this system, and each families' responses and needs are different.

TCASK hopes that this meeting will lead to a greater awareness of the suffering of these families and some ideas about how to begin to address some of their needs.
