What We Do

Catholic Mobilizing Network educates the lay community through our programs and materials on the Church’s teachings on the death penalty, facilitates respectful and informed discourse within the Catholic community and the community at large and advocates local and national community leaders for life and human dignity.

The Catholic Mobilizing Network has gathered a wide variety of print, video and other resources to assist individuals and groups in their efforts to bring about an end to the death penalty and promote restorative justice in the United States.

CMN provides a wealth of resources for all ages including curriculum materials intended to help teachers, pastors or youth/campus ministers lead students in age-appropriate discussions about the death penalty. The Catholic Mobilizing Network welcomes educator feedback on these materials, as well as submission of self-created lesson plans for consideration for inclusion in this section.
