New Conservative Coalition Joins Fight To End Death Penalty

Jan 23, 2017

That’s more executions than any other year since capital punishment was reinstated nationwide 40 years ago. The debate over the death penalty has a new participant: Georgia Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty. It’s part of a national movement that is spreading. We talked with Marc Hyden, the group’s national advocacy coordinator.
