Join Equal UA in promoting an inclusive climate that encourages all people to feel welcome and participate fully within our community.

We will be discussing Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption, August 18, 2015, by Bryan Stevenson (366 pages). The Upper Arlington Public Library [including the consortium with which the Upper Arlington Public Library shares books] owns 98 copies of this book.

Bryan Stevenson was a young lawyer when he founded the Equal Justice Initiative, a legal practice dedicated to defending those who are most desperate and in need: the poor, the wrongly condemned, and the women and children who are 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.
