What does justice look like in today’s society? Mercy? How can one person make a difference in a world of injustice? Join us at Michelle Piccirillo’s on Thursday, November 15 at 7:15 pm to discuss Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson.
Just Mercy is the powerful true story of Stevenson who was a young lawyer when he founded the Equal Justice Initiative, a legal practice dedicated to defending those most desperate and in need. 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. (GoodReads website)
