The Moran Center was honored to partner with Family Action Network to bring Bryan Stevenson to ETHS on March 23, 2015 and host two follow-up events to inform community members how to respond to Stevenson’s call to action. 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. In 2014, Stevenson published Just Mercy, a powerful true story about the potential for mercy to redeem us, and a clarion call to fix our broken system of justice. Just Mercy has been named one of the best books of 2014 by The New York Times Book Review, The Washington Post, The Boston Globe ,The Seattle Times and Kirkus Reviews. View Stevenson in this Ted Talk.
