Conservatives Opposed to the Death Penalty

May 28, 2020

This was the third in a series of Abolition University education sessions for VADP supporters. This event focused on Conservative Opposition to the Death Penalty.

One national leader and two conservative leaders here in Virginia shared their stories for this session:

  • Hannah Cox, National Manager, Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty
  • Chris Braunlich, President of the Thomas Jefferson Institute for Public Policy
  • Nick Cote, Libertarian activist
  • Dale Brumfield, VADP Field Director

Hannah talked about the rapidly increasing number of Republicans coming to oppose capital punishment across the country, leading abolition efforts in many state legislatures. Chris and Nick shared their own reasons for joining the death penalty abolition movement. Dale talked about the warm reception that he has received from conservative audiences here in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Panel members also answered questions from participants in this one hour online session.
