An Evening with Sister Helen Prejean

February 23, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


The International Museum of Human Rights of San Diego (iMoHR) invites you to welcome Sister Helen Prejean, world renowned death penalty abolitionist and author of “Dead Man Walking” and “River of Fire”.  She will be speaking at the First Church of the Nazarene, on Sunday, February 23 at 6:00 p.m.  A book signing and a reception will follow her presentation.


Known around the world for her tireless work against the death penalty, Sister Helen Prejean’s bestselling book, “Dead Man Walking: An Eyewitness Account of the Death Penalty in the United States” sparked a national dialogue on capital punishment. Her latest book, “River of Fire,” is a memoir chronicling her journey to becoming an activist nun working to transform societal injustices.


This event is organized to honor the life of our late board member Tim Spann, and is made possible thanks the collaboration of iMoHR, the Tim Spann Memorial Fund, and the Run for Cover bookstore.
