Sister Helen Prejean is a member of the Congregation of Joseph and author of the book, Dead Man Walking: An Eyewitness Account of the Death Penalty in the United States. Sister Helen has been instrumental in sparking national dialogue on the death penalty and helping to shape the Catholic Church’s newly vigorous opposition to state executions. She divides her time between educating citizens about the death penalty and counseling individual death row prisoners. She has accompanied six men to their deaths.
Her novel inspired the hit movie, Dead Man Walking, which was nominated for four Academy Awards and won Best Actress.
