Invite Sister Helen to speak

Sister Helen’s talks

Sister Helen speaks to schools and colleges, faith-based groups, legal organizations, education conferences and other groups about the death penalty and about the need to “get religion right.”

She now does almost all of her talks via Zoom or another online platform. Only very rarely does she do in-person events - just a few times a year - usually for large events that dovetail perfectly with our mission.

We want to assure you that, even remotely, Sr. Helen’s talks are a very special event, and the feedback from the online talks she has given has been universally positive.

Zoom Modules for schools and colleges

Sr. Helen also offers special Zoom modules, tailored both for schools and colleges wishing to build an event centered around the reading of one of Sr. Helen’s books (Dead Man Walking, The Death Of Innocents, River of Fire). Each module consists of:

  • a 20-minute introductory zoom, where Sr. Helen introduces the book to the participants and gives them some context;
  • class/group reading of the book, while keeping a journal (with a list of journal prompts provided by Sr. Helen);
  • a final hour-long Zoom with Sr. Helen, fueled by the participants own questions.
