Sr. Helen Prejean, Dead Man Walking author, to screen new documentary at DePaul this spring

DePaul University’s Division of Mission and Ministry will be hosting a series of social justice-focused events from Monday April 8 to Wednesday, April 10, and we encourage you to attend if you are local, and if not, to encourage your student to attend.

The events are inspired by and featuring the admirable work of Sister Helen Prejean, a devoted and outspoken advocate for the abolition of the death penalty. Sr. Prejean is the author of many books, including "Dead Man Walking: An Eyewitness of the Death Penalty in the United States," and is a world-renowned social activist who has dedicated her life’s work to eradicating capital punishment using her Roman-Catholic platform.
