Upcoming Book Discussion: Just Mercy
Our new Anti-Racism Steering Group would like to invite you to join them in reading Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson (and/or watch the film) and participate in an upcoming discussion this September! There are two discussion dates available for you to choose from:
- Wednesday, September 16 @ 12:00 p.m.
- Wednesday, September 23 @ 5:30 p.m.
Both discussions will take place on Zoom. Links to the zoom calls are provided in our Friday News from the Rock. We look forward to a great discussion with you!
“Bryan Stevenson was a young lawyer when he founded the Equal Justice Initiative, a legal practice dedicated to defending those most desperate and in need: the poor, the wrongly condemned, and women and children trapped in the farthest reaches of our criminal justice system. One of his first cases was that of Walter McMillian, a young man who was sentenced to die for a notorious murder he insisted he didn’t commit. The case drew Bryan into a tangle of conspiracy, political machination, and legal brinksmanship—and transformed his understanding of mercy and justice forever.”
