  Activist Sister Helen Prejean


 

When: February 6, 2014, 7:00 - 9:30 p.m. 
Where: Levin Ballroom, Usdan Student Center
Brandeis University 

This lecture by Sister Helen Prejean is part of the 2014 'DEIS Impact! week of special events. It will be Sister Helen's second visit to Brandeis. In 2006, the Schuster Institute hosted her for the Brandeis Day of Innocence in a widely attended talk titled "What If We're Killing the Wrong Man?"

Sister Helen is the author of the best selling book "Dead Man Walking," which inspired a movie, a play, an opera, and in her own words, "a national debate." She has been in the prison ministry as an anti-death penalty activist for more than thirty years.

Here she is talking to Amy Goodman at Democracy Now.
