Bryan Stevenson


Bryan Stevenson, Executive Director of Equal Justice Initiative and faculty at New York University School of Law, has won national acclaim for his work challenging bias against the poor and people of color in the criminal justice system. Since graduating from Harvard Law School and the Harvard School of Government, he has assisted in securing relief for dozens of condemned prisoners, advocated for poor people and developed community-based reform litigation aimed at improving the administration of criminal justice. Stevenson’s 2014 book Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption was a New York Times bestseller and was named one of the best books of the year by The New York Times Book Review and The Washington Post.
