Sister Helen Prejean is a member of the Congregation of St. Joseph where she began working in prison ministry in 1981. As part of her work, she became the spiritual advisor for Patrick Sonnier, who was convicted of killing two teenage girls. Her experience of walking with him through his execution led Sister Helen to writeDead Man Walking: an Eyewitness Account of the Death Penalty, which was subsequently made into a movie starring Susan Sarandon and Sean Penn. It was nominated for four Oscars; Susan Sarandon won for best actress. Sister Helen is the founder of “Survive,” a victim’s advocacy group. She continues to organize against the death penalty while simultaneously working with the families of murdered victims.
