David Kaczynski is retiring after serving as NYADP’s Executive Director since 2001. With immense courage, hard work, and determination, David played a vital role in abolishing the death penalty in New York and in states around the country. Since 2008, David has successfully re-directed NYADP’s efforts to focus on restorative justice, reducing violence, and engaging youth in crime-ridden communities to consider alternatives to violence.
To celebrate David’s retirement, please join us in honoring him, and/or contributing in his honor to NYADP so that we may build upon David’s legacy of passion and advocacy. Your support will help NYADP continue to monitor and defeat efforts to reinstate the death penalty in New York, advocate for the needs of crime victims, and promote restorative justice. Your contributions will also support Limits of Loyalty, our current signature violence intervention program.
P.S. Make an evening of it!
Following the reception we encourage you to head to The Culture Project, 45 Bleeker St., for a 7:00 pm performance of The Exonerated, a play that tells the true tales of six innocent death row survivors -- in their own words. Purchase half-price tickets ($37.50) by clicking here, calling 866-811-4111, or visiting TCP's box office (once power is restored to that part of the city). Easily accessible by subway from the reception. Marsha Mason and Leonard Robinson are scheduled to appear in the show.
All sponsorships will be acknowledged at the reception, on the NYADP website, and in our year-end mailing. And donations of any amount will be brought to David's attention. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. Please contact us if you would like to attend but lack the funds.
David, members of the NYADP board, and other supporters and friends of David’s are very excited to have as many people as possible attend this event. A similar event will also be held in Albany in early 2013. We look forward to seeing you at one or both events!
Please contact NYADP if you have any questions:
