Organizing to Oppose the Death Penalty

Special Featured Link (the last link in the list above)

Sr. Helen Prejean, CSJ (author of Dead Man Walking and Death of Innocents, her newest book) has recently announced that the death penalty Moratorium Campaign is being revitalized in support of all efforts to put executions on hold in the United States. The new director is Fr. George Lundy, S.J., who has worked with her for many years in opposition to the death penalty. George served as the launch coordinator last year when they invited the Jesuit schools to participate in the Dead Man Walking play project (the book has recently been made into a play).

As in the past, the Moratorium Campaign will do whatever it can to support state and local groups' efforts against the death penalty, especially by gathering individual petitions and group resolutions from all across the nation and focusing them in particular states when they are most needed.

The Moratorium Campaign also sponsors the Witness to Innocence Program, which invites death row prisoners who have been exonerated and set free to become public speakers to tell their stories of how the system failed to do justice in their cases.
