From United Methodists Against the Death Penalty (http://www.umc.org/site/c.lwL4KnN1LtH/b.2248845/k.5F14/Death_Penalty_Overview.htm):
The Dead Man Walking School Theater Project (http://www.dmwplay.org/) incorporates the power of theater arts and academic study into the national discourse on the death penalty.
The project engages students, faculty and community members through the play “Dead Man Walking” as a tool for justice. Sister Helen Prejean, CSJ, author of the book, and Tim Robbins, who wrote the stage play in 2002, have invited high schools and colleges across the nation to produce this transformational play.
Since the launch of the Dead Man Walking School Theater Project in the fall of 2003 more than 200 high schools and colleges across the nation have produced the play, conducted academic courses on the death penalty, and brought the issue to life on their campuses through art, music, public education and action events.
To learn how your school can participate in the Dead Man Walking School Project, contact the National Coordinator, Steven Crimaldi, at (617) 263-7550; or send e-mail to him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
