GEORGETOWN LIBERTY GROUP TO HOLD DEATH PENALTY FORUM STUDENTS TO LEARN WHY CONSERVATIVES OPPOSE CAPITAL PUNISHMENT March 3, 2014 – Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty has been invited to present at a special forum by the Georgetown University Young Americans for Liberty (YAL) chapter. The event will take place on Wednesday March 5th from 8:00-9:00pm in Georgetown University’s White-Gravenor Building auditorium (Room 311). The founder of Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty, former Montana House Majority Leader Roy Brown, will be joined on stage by the group’s national coordinator Marc Hyden. “Conservative Libertarians are increasingly reevaluating capital punishment,” said Marc Hyden, national coordinator for Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty. “They want to learn why we think the death penalty is wasteful, unfair, error-prone, and out-of-step with conservative values.” The national Young Americans for Liberty organization formed a strategy partnership with Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty in 2013. “We are pleased to host this event and we love the work that Conservatives Concerned is doing,” said Michelle Tu, the event coordinator for YAL. The White-Gravenor building is located on the Georgetown University campus at 108 37th Street NW.
