Death Row Support Project

“Everybody on death row needs someone at their side.”—Sr. Helen Prejean, CSJ

A person confined to death row often spends up to 23 hours each day alone in a small cell—for years and sometimes decades.

Letters can bring a ray of hope to the darkness of death row.

For those on the outside, learning to know just one prisoner can dispel some of the misconceptions and fears about prisons and the people locked away inside of them.
