Speaking Engagement Request form


** If you request "In-person, but Zoom substitution ok", we will work with you to schedule an in-person talk, but if, as the event date approaches, the pandemic conditions don't allow for that, we will convert it to a Zoom talk.
We like to know this even for virtual events, so Sr. Helen's talk can reflect local context.
We suggest a minimum honorarium of $500 for Zoom talks. For in-person talks Sr. Helen usually receives between $2500-$10,000, plus fares and accommodation. Fees are always negotiable - please talk with Sr. Margaret Maggio to determine what works for your group. The honorarium supports our work to end the death penalty and push for criminal justice reform.
We recommend Dead Man Walking for most schools and colleges; River of Fire for faith-based groups.
For example, for schools, let us know what type of class/course of study. More generally, you might want Sr. Helen to focus on a particular area, such as racial injustice, or spiritual activism.
