 For more than three decades, Alabama public interest attorney Bryan Stevenson, founder and executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative, has advocated on behalf of people living in poverty, people who are incarcerated, and people sentenced to death, seeking to eradicate racial discrimination in the criminal legal system. An intimate portrait of this remarkable man, True Justice: Bryan Stevenson’s Fight for Equality follows his struggle to create greater fairness in the system and shows how racial injustice emerged, evolved, and continues to threaten the country, challenging viewers to confront it.

The screening will be followed by a discussion with ACLU-PA Organizer for the Campaign for Smart Justice Alex Domingos.

This event is free.
