EDITOR’S NOTE: The following letter was authored by Michelle Liles, daughter of Debbie Liles who was found brutally beaten and murdered in her Jacksonville home in March 2017. Her father, Michael Liles, was the executive director of the Justice Coalition, a Jacksonville nonprofit victims’ services center. Already a victim advocate before Debbie’s tragic death, Michael channeled his grief and heartbreak into his quest to find justice for Debbie and his fierce advocacy of Amendment 6/Marsy’s Law for Florida. Several weeks ago, Michael unexpectedly passed away.
In celebration of National Make a Difference Day, Marsy’s Law for Florida, the organization advocating for crime victims’ rights through Amendment 6, will spearhead a “Day of Action” on Saturday, October 27, where supporters and volunteers will lead advocacy efforts across all 67 Florida counties, from hurricane relief efforts and bakery giveaways to community festivals and voter education.
Linda Beni's daughter, Brittany, was killed by a drunk driver. Linda published an opinion-editorial in the Fort Myers News-Press detailing her support for Marsy's Law titled "Amendment 6 protects victims like my daughter." Read the full article here.
