The Death Penalty’s Failures on Display Young Americans for Liberty 2015 PA State Convention Conservatives to Speak Against Capital Punishment March 12, 2015 – Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty (CCATDP), a national network of conservatives and libertarians questioning the alignment of capital punishment with their principles, will be presenting at the upcoming 2015 Young Americans for Liberty (YAL) Pennsylvania State Convention. CCATDP is a strategic partner of YAL. It will take place on Saturday March 14th at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh. Marc Hyden, the national coordinator of CCATDP, will make a presentation to the convention during the Meet the Sponsors section at 3:30 PM. He will also be available at the exhibitor’s area throughout the day. “Liberty-minded people want to limit the power of government, including the death penalty, which is a broken government program that has the real potential of killing innocent Americans,” said Hyden. To date, more than 140 individuals have been released from death rows across America because they were wrongfully convicted. YAL was formed at the end of the 2008 Republican presidential campaign former Texas Congressman Ron Paul. Dr. Paul supports the goals of CCATDP. “I believe that support for the death penalty is inconsistent with libertarianism and traditional conservatism,” Dr. Paul said. “So I am pleased with Conservatives Concerned about the Death Penalty’s efforts to form a coalition of libertarians and conservatives to work to end capital punishment.” The day’s events will take place in the Duquesne University Ballroom from 9:00am – 7:00pm.
