Press release, 3/22/2021 - Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty, a national network of conservatives questioning the alignment of capital punishment with conservative principles, will be taking part in this year’s virtual Justice Day on the Hill, a forum co-hosted by Tennesseans for Alternatives to the Death Penalty and Tennessee Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty. The event will take place on Wednesday, March 24. Hannah Cox, the organization’s Senior National Manager, will speak at 7:30 a.m. (CT) via Zoom.

“My message at Justice Day on the Hill will essentially be that anyone who values limited government and upholds individual liberty should be taking a hard look at ending the death penalty because it is so riddled with flaws that are anti-American,” Cox said. 

Cox has deep roots in the Volunteer State as the former Director of Outreach for the Beacon Center of Tennessee and Director of Development for the Tennessee Firearms Association. She is also a graduate of Belmont University in Nashville. 

“Tennessee needs to re-examine capital punishment from a conservative perspective, to take a look at the excessive costs, the waste of tax dollars, and the risk of executing innocent people,” Cox said. “The death penalty is not fiscally responsible, it does not improve public safety, and it does not value life.”
