True Justice: Bryan Stevenson's Fight for Equality
Join us for a viewing of the HBO documentary about the Equal Justice Initiative’s fight against a criminal legal system that, in lawyer Bryan Stevenson’s words, “treats you better if you’re rich and guilty than if you’re poor and innocent.” https://eji.org/projects/true-justice/
The film viewing will be followed by a dialogue about mass incarceration and injustice and the memoir of Ian Manuel (speaking at Butler on September 22), one of Stevenson’s clients and a survivor of the system. Bryan Stevenson speaks at Butler/CTS on October 5.
Cosponsored with the Black Hub, Center for Faith and Vocation, and Christian Theological Seminary.
