Help us end the death penalty

Your donation helps us educate the American public about our unfixable death penalty and the terrible human costs it places on all of us. Through my books and talks and social media outreach, we reach hundreds of thousands of people each year. But not without your help! Please donate today. - Sr. Helen Prejean

You can make a one-time donation, set up a monthly recurring donation, or sign up for round-ups. I encourage you to try round-ups; it’s the easiest way to support our cause. It lets you round-up all your purchases to the nearest dollar, with those extra cents going directly to our work. Just click Round-ups in the box, create an account and connect your card. Then each time you go to a movie or buy a book or fill up your car, you’ll know you’re helping us make that final push to end the death penalty. We’ve created a Guide to donating with round-ups to help you out.

 Not in the USA? Please set up a monthly donation or make a one-time donation; round-ups are only available in the USA.

Ministry Against the Death Penalty logo

The Ministry Against the Death Penalty (MADP) fosters creative and reflective programs that awaken hearts and minds and inspire social change. We believe:

  • in the dignity and rights of all persons and recognize that government-sanctioned killing and the practice of torture is a violation of those rights and a denial of human dignity;
  • that the criminal justice system in the United States disproportionately affects poor people and people of color;
  • that prison reform and the abolition of capital punishment will support necessary systemic change.

We are committed to promoting compassionate alternatives to the death penalty, including restorative justice and funding for victims’ services.
