Abstract:

This collection contains material detailing Sr. Helen's work with death row inmates and her campaign against the death penalty. There is correspondence with three of the prisoners for whom she has been spiritual advisor and information about two of the other men she has accompanied to execution. The death row inmates with whom Sr. Helen is currently involved are not represented here. Included is also documentation on the process of writing her two books, the impact that those books had, and the process of turning "Dead man walking" into a movie, an opera, and a play. Sr. Helen's advocacy work is represented with material about her work with the Louisiana Coalition for Alternatives to the Death Penalty (LCADP) and the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty (NCADP), the Moratorium Campaign, the Catholic Campaign, Hands Off Cain, the subject files she collected, her other writings, and correspondence with notable persons, including her letter to Pope John Paul II about changing the Catholic Catechism. The Ministry Against the Death Penalty (MADP) staff files are also represented and include many letters about the impact of Sr. Helen's work. There are also listings of all the events at which Sr. Helen has been a speaker. Lastly there are photographs, awards, memorabilia, videos, and costume pieces reflecting many of the activities and events represented in this collection.
