As the school year begins and new programs launch in libraries and community centers, we invite you to foster conversations about the death penalty utilizing the book Dead Man Walking by Sister Helen Prejean, CSJ. Here are a few helpful and free resources for engaging students, neighbors, and peers in conversation:

Because of the importance of young people in shaping our moral future, Sister Helen and her staff are eager to ensure that as many as possible in this new generation have the chance to read Dead Man Walking. The original version of the book is now available at a greatly reduced price through a special bulk buying program for schools. This is the exact same text minus the new foreword and afterwords you’ll find in the 20th anniversary edition. All proceeds from the sale of the original book go to aid Sister Helen’s non-profit, the Ministry Against the Death Penalty.

For more information about utilizing Dead Man Walking in your community, please contact Sister Helen’s Special Projects Manager, Rachael Hudak, by e-mail or call (312) 362-5573.
