Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption

July, 2020 Selection

This timely book by lawyer Bryan Stevenson details the cruelty, injustice, and bias found in our penal system. It’s filled with thought-provoking quotes, such as this: “The closer we get to mass incarceration and extreme levels of punishment, the more I believe it’s necessary to recognize we all need mercy, we all need justice, and perhaps we all need some measure of unmerited grace.” You can find it here.
