Just Mercy: Film Screening & Post-Film Discussion Event
Just Mercy is a powerful book, and recently converted movie written by Equal Justice Advocate, Bryan Stevenson. Just Mercy forces America to look at the inequality and racism in our criminal justice system. That said, the ACS University of Buffalo School of Law Student Chapter is pleased to be able to provide you with the ability to screen the film for free. Check out the trailer here.
After viewing the film, we hope you decide to join us October 2nd, for a post-film discussion with Fernando Bermudez, from Represent Justice. This organization includes people who are system-impacted leaders working across the country to push for a fair legal system, particularly for people of color. You can see the work they do at representjustice.org
Film Screening: Register below for your free, single-use viewing code, which will be emailed to you.
Represent Justice post-film discussion: 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM, October 2, 2020. We will send you an invitation to register for the post-film discussion after you request the film code if you decide you would like to attend.
Mr. Fernando Bermudez was wrongfully convicted and incarcerated for 18 years here in New York, ultimately becoming the first Latino to be legally exonerated for "actual innocence." He has gone on to help Connecticut abolish the death penalty and has worked tirelessly to share his message both nationally and across the world.
