Catholic Mobilizing Network to End the Use of the Death Penalty is a part of Ministry Against the Death Penalty, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization sponsored by the Congregation of St. Joseph. Originating through the ministries of Sister Helen Prejean, CSJ, one of the leading voices against the death penalty in the United States, this ministry conducts and facilitates public forums, studies, open discussions, publications and presentations concerning the impact of social justice on the underprivileged. The Ministry also includes the Dead Man Walking School Theatre Project, which facilitates the performance of the stage play of Tim Robbins’ Dead Man Walking - based on Sr. Helen’s book of the same name – to be performed at colleges and universities across the nation. Additionally, CMN conducts its work in cooperation with the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops (USCCB) and is supported by a number of other organizations in accomplishing its mission.
