Invite Sister Helen to speak

COVID-19 UPDATE - Please read first!

Sister Helen has cancelled or postponed all of her in-person speaking engagements until at least the Fall.

In rescheduling, we will be giving priority to groups whose events have been affected. If you are planning an event that was not already on Sr. Helen’s calendar, please keep in mind that we will be working, first, with organizers whose events have been postponed.

PLEASE NOTE: A large portion of the funds for Sister Helen’s work comes from her speaking engagements, and so the virus has hit our ability to operate, as it has so many other small organizations. Sister Helen will be making herself available for remote talks, primarily via Zoom. If you would like to schedule such a talk, we require that you pay an honorarium. We can assure you, that even via Zoom, Sister Helen is worth it! 🙂

To request a speaking engagement
(virtual or in-person)

Sister Helen travels extensively in the USA and overseas, speaking to groups about the death penalty and about the need to “get religion right”.

You’ll find a calendar of Sister Helen’s upcoming speaking engagements on this site; please check it out before you make your request, and be aware that even though no event is listed for a particular date, Sister Helen may already have another commitment, such as visiting a prison, on that date.

If you would like to organize a speaking event in your area or with your organization, please drop us an email.

Because we don’t know how the pandemic will affect us down the line,  dates may need to be adjusted. If you’re happy to have your in-person event converted to a Zoom event should that prove necessary, please let us know that, too.

* We suggest a minimum honorarium of $500 for small groups (speak to us if this is difficult for you). Please pay more if you can afford it - all the monies we receive go directly to our work, including our current efforts to prevent our national and state governments from abandoning the incarcerated during the pandemic.
