In the week of April 22-29, 2015, Sister Helen Prejean, C.S.J., activist and author of Dead Man Walking, will once again visit DePaul for a week’s worth of programming inspired by her work against the use of the death penalty in the United States. Departments from around the university will host panel discussions, class activities, and performances on the topic of death penalty abolition and Sister Helen’s novel. Events include conversations with the Catholic Studies department, the College of Law, the Peace, Justice & Conflict Studies department, and the social work department.
