End the death penalty.
Advance justice.
Begin healing.

Stay Informed and Make a Difference.


Every person deserves to be treated with dignity –

no exceptions.

Our Catholic faith affirms the sacredness of all life, regardless of the harm someone has endured or inflicted. The death penalty violates this divine vision of justice.

We can choose life over death, and healing over revenge.

Our revenge-driven responses to crime and violence aren’t working. Find out how CMN is advancing justice solutions that promote Jesus’ reconciling way.

How We Work

CMN leverages a three-tiered strategy to empower Catholics and people of goodwill to end the death penalty, advance justice solutions aligned with Catholic values, and promote healing approaches like restorative justice.


We create innovative resources and learning opportunities that shed light on the Church’s teachings and expose the flaws of the criminal legal system.


We empower people of faith to engage in informed advocacy against the death penalty and champion justice solutions that center healing and human dignity.


We ground our work in faith, bringing Catholics together for prayer and spiritual formation that uplifts God’s desire for justice and healing.
