Sister Ardeth Platte (April 10, 1936 – Sept. 30, 2020)

Sr. Ardeth Platte, a Dominican nun who fought for nuclear disarmament and inspired a character on the hit Netflix show ‘Orange is the New Black’ died in her sleep at the Dorothy Day Catholic Worker House in Washington, D.C., on Sept. 30.

We give thanks for the life and ministry of our friend, Plowshares activist and peace witness Ardeth Platte, OP, who was committed to the nonviolent message of Jesus. She died in her sleep last night. May her family and community find comfort. Sister Ardeth, pray for us.

Sister Ardeth Platte became a pop culture icon for her many acts of resistance to nuclear weapons. Later she taught yoga at the Danbury Federal Correctional Institution with Piper Kerman, author of ‘Orange is New Black.’

She died yesterday at age 84.

Thank you for everything, Sister Ardeth ❤️ Yesterday, we received the sad news that Sister Ardeth Platte, the inspiring activist, ICAN campaigner & Dominican nun, passed away. She was such a warm, courageous and inspiring voice in our movement, it’s hard to find the right words.

My good friend died today. Sister Ardeth Platte. An angel. She went to jail/prison over 30 times for protesting against nuclear weapons. She was a character on Orange is the New Black. She was the most kind and humble person I have ever met.

I’m heartbroken by the passing of Sister Ardeth Platte. I’m struggling to find something eloquent enough to express what she meant for me & many in this movement. She was one of the bravest activists I know & I’m so sad because the world needs more people like her, not less.

Tender Sister Ardeth Platte, OP died last night. You’ll soon see stories of her heroic life of peace activism. I cherish memories of her talking to me about Jesus while we were both handcuffed, telling me of reading Acts of the Apostles in jail, & emails of her beloved garden.

I was so sad to hear about the death of Sr. Ardeth Platte, OP, today. The nun on Orange is the New Black was based on her and her radical witness for peace. I did a really fun interview with Ardeth about it back in 2015. May her memory be a revolution

We are heartbroken to hear the loss of Sister Ardeth Platte, who passed away yesterday at age 84.

Sister Platte was one of Fire Drill Friday’s most loyal supporters. We are so thankful for her many years of heroic activism. Rest in Power

My friend Ardeth Platte, OP died in her sleep last night at her home at the Dorothy Day Catholic Worker in DC. A tireless worker for nuclear disarmament. Ardeth ¡Presente!

“They shall beat their swords into ploughshares, and their spears into pruning hooks.”

Rest in peace, Sister Ardeth Platte, 1936–2020.

Your lifetime of courageous activism will inspire for generations to come.
