The Opposite of Poverty is Justice!

Bryan Stevenson, Executive Director of the Equal Justice Initiative. He has has won national acclaim for his work challenging bias against the poor and people of color in the criminal justice system.

This presentation is right in line with what CitySquare's Public Policy Department has shared in it's public awareness efforts in it's book club with the review of the book, 'The New Jim Crow' and it's recent showing screening of the documentary 'Fair Game?'.

What Stevenson is talking about is not a secret - it's an inconvenient reality and challenge that it takes a commitment to justice to actually do something about!
