Terri Steinberg

At the age of 20, Terri‘s son, Justin Wolfe, ex-high school football player and normal, average, all American, suburban kid was sentenced to death for a murder he did not commit. He has been on Virginia’s death row since 2002, becoming their youngest resident, and has had several stays of execution.

Terri heard about a group protesting the death penalty at the US Supreme Court in Washington, DC. and decided to meet those fighting to abolish the death penalty. Terri began her own journey to save Justin’s life. She has spoken on many occasions with the Journey of Hope, including during our 2009 Germany tour.

Justin’s death sentence was vacated in 2011 however the fact that he remains in prison to this day continues the ongoing tragedy and failure of a broken system. Terri has traveled with the Journey all over the world, speaking out not only on behalf of Justin but for all of those still on death rows and the families that continue to suffer at the hands of a broken system.
