Billiart Center | Sr. Helen Prejean Tackles the Death Penalty at Home and Abroad

“Reading scripture is not neutral. Reading anything is not neutral!”

Sr. Helen Prejean, international anti-Death Penalty activist, gave a rousing talk to Trinity on Feb 28, charging our community to go forth and fight the myriad of social and political injustices we see around us, especially those in our criminal justice system.

She was smart, funny, spiritual and challenged all of us to think! Above all, she talked about a very important issue: the death penalty, her national and international work to fight against the death penalty, and her compassion and emotional journey as she supported so many on death row, their families, and the families of the victims of death row inmates.

Watch her incredible remarks below!
