The Kentucky Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression will present the “Carl Braden Lifetime Achievement” award to Father Patrick Delahanty, a retired priest of the Archdiocese of Louisville and chair of the Kentucky Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty.

Father Delahanty said in a statement that he is “honored” to receive the award.

“This award is possible because of all the hard work of abolition supporters over the past 30 years in Kentucky,” said Father Delahanty. “The goal is in sight. With the continued financial contributions of supporters and their willingness to contact and urge Kentucky lawmakers to support abolition, we will prevail.”
