VADP Virtual Awards Luncheon featuring Sen. Tim Kaine

October 24, 2020

Seventy-two VADP supporters registered for this year’s annual awards luncheon that had to take place online due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Keynote speaker Cassy Stubbs, ACLU Capital Punishment Project Director, gave an overview of the national death penalty abolition movement and the key role of Virginia in the campaign to end capital punishment.

Sen. Tim Kaine was a special guest who gave an overview of the federal death penalty and his work on national abolition legislation.

We also honored murder victim family member Rachel Sutphin with our Betty Gallagher Citizen Advocate of the Year award and Sen. Bill Stanley with our Legislator of the Year award. Both spoke about their personal commitments to end the death penalty in Virginia.
