1 Girl Revolution

Oct 29, 2021

This week’s episode of the 1 Girl Revolution Podcast features Sister Helen Prejean, founder of the Ministry Against the Death Penalty, advocate, and author of “Dead Man Walking.” Sister Helen may be best known for her bestselling book that was turned into the Oscar Award winning film, “Dead Man Walking”, but Sister Helen is so much more. Sister Helen has dedicated her entire life to being a vocal advocate for the incarcerated population and particularly for those on death row. The Ministry Against the Death Penalty (MADP) fosters creative, reflective and educational programs that awaken hearts and minds, inspire social change, and strengthen our world’s commitment to human rights.

In this episode, you’ll hear:


  • Sister Helen’s life story; 
  • The story of how she decided to become a nun and what her life as a nun has been like;
  • The story of how she was asked to write Patrick Sonnier on death row and how their interactions changed the trajectory of her life;
  • How she got involved in the work she does on death row and why she’s dedicated her life to the incarcerated population - particularly those on death row;
  • Why we should all care and what we can do to learn more about incarceration and those on death row;
  • And so much more.
