Join us for a discussion on the award-winning film Just Mercy hosted by Dominique Gilliard. Dominique serves as the Director of Racial Righteousness and Reconciliation for the Evangelical Covenant Church and is the author of Rethinking Incarceration. He was a participant on our recent panel on systemic racism and COVID-19 from a black perspective and we are so excited to have Dominique back to lead us through this critical conversation! The discussion will touch on the history of racism within criminal justice system in the US and ways we can address the injustice of mass incarceration.
Dominique conducted an interview with the author of the book that the film is based on, Bryan Stevenson, published in Christianity Today. Check out their interview for a preview of what you can expect during this upcoming discussion.
