UREC Reads – Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson – ch. 1-2

January 14 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

An unforgettable true story about the potential for mercy to redeem us, and a clarion call to end mass incarceration in America — from one of the most inspiring lawyers of our time. Just Mercy tells the story of Equal Justice Initiative from the early days with a small staff facing the nation’s highest death sentencing and execution rates, through a successful campaign to challenge the cruel practice of sentencing children to die in prison, to revolutionary projects designed to confront Americans with our history of racial injustice.

Bryan Stevenson, author of Just Mercy, founded the Equal Justice Initiative in 1989, a nonprofit law office in Montgomery, Alabama, dedicated to defending the poor, the incarcerated, and the wrongly condemned.

We will focus on the Introduction and Chapters 1-2 on January 14.
