Bryan Stevenson is a renowned lawyer and founder of the Equal Justice Initiative, a non-profit organization that “is committed to ending mass incarceration and excessive punishment in the United States, to challenging racial and economic injustice, and to protecting basic human rights for the most vulnerable people in American society.” The Equal Justice Initiative represents prisoners who may have been wrongly convicted, unfairly sentenced or otherwise mistreated by our criminal justice system.

Stevenson is also the best-selling author of the book “Just Mercy,” which exposes the flaws in our criminal justice system and tells the stories of many clients Stevenson has worked with over the years.

We talked with Stevenson about our criminal justice system, his book and the work of the Equal Justice Initiative.
