Sister Helen Prejean speakingHelp us end the death penalty!

It’s time we pulled the plug on a system that’s irredeemably flawed; that targets the poor and people of color; that fails to deliver on its promise of healing for victims’ families; that dehumanizes every one of us. It’s time we pulled the plug on this barbaric practice altogether.

And so I invite you to contribute to the Ministry Against the Death Penalty’s work.

Your donation will enable us to continue our work on all fronts. You can help us to change hearts and minds throughout the country by bringing Dead Man Walking into libraries, schools, and communities, by supporting my talks, and spreading the word about our newsletter, Death Penalty Discourse (there’s a sign-up box on the home page of this website). Your donations will boost our social media campaigns that provide a voice for people on death row, for their families and for the families of victims, who all suffer through the death penalty. And your donations will help us to expand the use of my archives, housed at DePaul University, encouraging communities to connect to my letters, photographs, and artifacts from decades of work against the death penalty.

Will you contribute to help us in this work?

Whether you donate $5000 or $5, I thank you for joining me on this journey and being a part of our effort to end the death penalty.
