YAL Welcomes Their Strategic Partner, Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty, To the California State Convention

YAL Welcomes Their Strategic Partner Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty To the California State Convention April 22, 2014 – 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 exhibiting at the upcoming Young Americans for Liberty (YAL) California State Convention. CCATDP is a strategic partner of YAL. It will take place on Saturday April 26th at the University of Southern California, Davidson Conference Center. Among the featured speakers will be former Reagan administration official and conservative lawyer Bruce Fein; Lawrence Reed, President of the Foundation for Economic Education (FEE), and Jeffrey Tucker, CEO of Liberty.me and a Distinguished Fellow of FEE. Marc Hyden, national coordinator of CCATDP, will make a brief presentation during the Meet the Sponsors section at 12:15 PM. “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. CCATDP is proud to have the support of Ron Briggs, a Republican member of the Board of Supervisors in El Dorado County who helped pass the 1978 Briggs initiative that created California’s death penalty as we know it today. “With hindsight’s 20-20 vision and three decades of obstinate data, it’s clear to me that California created a fiscal monster that’s taking a human toll on the very people we wanted to protect. I support the efforts of Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty,” Briggs said. The day’s events will take place in the Davidson Conference Center at the University of Southern California, 3415 South Figueroa Street, Los Angeles (9:00am – 7:00pm).
