Sr. Helen Prejean, C.S.J.

2011 Annual Rev. Bernie Clark, C.S.C. Lecture

“Building Justice in the World: Confronting Evil”

Sr. Helen Prejean, C.S.J., recounted her experience of being awakened to fight for justice. She spoke of her work as a spiritual advisor to six men on Death Row and how walking with them to their executions has shaped her life’s work as a world-renown advocate against the death penalty.

Sr. Helen, using her wit, southern charm, and wisdom defined Justice as “Just Us,” and encouraged the audience, especially students, to find their passion for justice, and act upon it.
