The 2021 conference panelists all reside in Kansas.
They all support abolition of the death penalty.
Their personal histories are diverse—a teacher who is a murder victim family member, a conservative Republican who is a former supporter of the death penalty, a screen writer and film maker, a pastor, and a death penalty attorney.
In their initial remarks and subsequent dialogue, they raised important insights and haunting questions for conference participants to consider.
The conference video is now available on the KCADP Facebook page.
