Bryan Stevenson – American Injustice: Mercy, Humanity and Making a Difference

April 5, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Bryan Stevenson
American Injustice:
Mercy, Humanity and Making a Difference

“[Stevenson] believes that the opposite of poverty is not wealth but justice; that all human beings are more than the worst thing they’ve ever done; and that racial healing cannot take place until the country faces the truth about its history.” The Washington Post

For nearly four decades, Bryan Stevenson has advocated on behalf of the poor, the incarcerated and the condemned, seeking to eradicate racial discrimination in the criminal justice system. A MacArthur Fellow, he is an attorney, human rights activist, author of the bestselling book Just Mercy and founder of the Equal Justice Initiative. He recently spearheaded the Legacy Museum and the National Memorial for Peace and Justice, the first national memorial to victims of white supremacy. Now, he is the subject of HBO’s documentary True Justice, premiering in June. Spend an inspiring evening with one of the country’s most visionary legal thinkers and social justice advocates.
