Why We Do What We Do, Featuring Jennifer Bishop Jenkins


Jennifer Bishop-Jenkins is the sister of Nancy Bishop Langert, who, along with her husband Richard and their unborn child, were murdered in Winnetka, Illinois in 1990. Jennifer's family was denied their right to make a victim impact statement at the offender's sentencing. Jennifer later mobilized a statewide victim organization and has worked nationally to defend the rights of crime victims.

After connecting with Marsy's Law, Jennifer began the first campaign for passage outside of California. Marsy's Law was passed into the Illinois Constitution overwhelmingly by Illinois voters in 2014. Jennifer still works to support Marsy's Law efforts in other states and has said she will not rest until all Americans have constitutional rights through Marsy's Law.

In the third episode of our ongoing Facebook Live series, "Why We Do What We Do," we'll sit down with Jennifer to discuss her family's long road to justice and how she found herself leading the charge for Marsy's Law in Illinois.
