Join us in viewing together the compelling HBO documentary film  True Justice: Bryan Stevenson’s Fight for Equality  about the lifesaving, life-changing crusade of Bryan Stevenson. Stevenson is a dedicated public defense attorney and the founder and Executive Director of the groundbreaking  Equal Justice Initiative  in Montgomery, Alabama.

True Justice: Bryan Stevenson’s Fight for Equality  examines his personal journey, as he labors to bring justice to wrongfully convicted and disadvantaged prison inmates. The film weaves together his own story, those of his clients, and a history of injustice and complicity in our justice system. As Stevenson reveals a troubling narrative of racial inequality still prevalent in this country, he challenges us to seek the truth, confront it and work towards reconciliation.

After we view this powerful film, we will hear from a panel of vital, visionary leaders seeking ways to foster racial justice in the criminal justice system. And then we will gather in groups to learn more and determine how we can live out our faith—how we can “do justice and love mercy—by joining Stevenson’s fight in a national campaign that seeks true justice for people and communities of color.  Learn more…
