You're invited! Join the ACLU of Florida and Allendale United Methodist Church on Thursday, May 26, for a screening of "True Justice: Bryan Stevenson’s Fight for Equality."

About the documentary: In the last half-century, America has become the nation with the highest rate of incarceration in the world, has authorized the execution of hundreds of condemned prisoners, and remains the only country with no minimum age of trying children as adults in the criminal justice system. 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 the disadvantaged, the incarcerated, and the condemned, seeking to eradicate racial discrimination in the criminal justice system. "True Justice: Bryan Stevenson’s Fight for Equality" offers an intimate portrait of this remarkable man and is told primarily through his own words.

Our Campaign for Justice is working to end Florida’s mass incarceration crisis and end racial disparities in the criminal legal system. Join us for a screening and discussion of the award-winning documentary and criminal justice reform in Florida.

Please note that you must wear a mask in order to attend the event. RSVP to let us know you can make it.
