Advisory Council

CMN’s Advisory Council is composed of individuals whose expertise, experience, resources, or prominence can support CMN in achieving its mission: the abolition of the death penalty and promotion of restorative justice. The council was inspired during the global Catholic Church’s Synod on Synodality, in light of the synod’s invitation to experience and encounter the larger community of the People of God.

Except narrowly in regard to ending the death penalty and advancing restorative justice, CMN does not endorse or reflect the views, policies, or political positions of any advisor.
