Press Release: Death Penalty to be Discussed at LPAC

By Marc Hyden DEATH PENALTY TO BE DISCUSSED AT LPAC LIBERTARIAN CONCERNS GROW September 11, 2013 – Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty, a national network of conservatives and libertarians questioning the alignment of capital punishment with their principles, will be exhibiting at the 3RD Annual Liberty Political Action Conference (LPAC) September 19-22 in Chantilly, VA. Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty heads into the conference on the heels of the recent endorsement by Dr. Ron Paul, Chairman of LPAC’s host organization the Campaign for Liberty. “I believe that support for the death penalty is inconsistent with libertarianism and traditional conservatism. 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.” LPAC will bring together leaders of the liberty movement – conservative, libertarian, constitutional and free market organizations, elected officials and grassroots activists, as well as businesses – to discuss the issues facing America. “Members of the liberty movement want to reel in the power of government, including the death penalty, which is a failed government program that risks killing innocent Americans,” said Marc Hyden, a national advocacy coordinator for Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty who will be at LPAC. To date, more than 140 individuals have been released from death rows across America after evidence of their innocence was discovered. The booth for Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty will be located in the LPAC exhibit area.
