The Montana Racial Equity Project in partnership with the Bozeman Public Library presented an open forum to discuss issues featured in the work of Bryan Stevenson, Executive Director of the Equal Justice Initiative, and author of Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption. The issues are: Aiding the poor, the incarcerated and the condemned, specifically – the elimination of excessive and unfair sentencing, the exoneration of innocent death row prisoners, elimination of the abuse of the incarcerated and the mentally ill and aiding children prosecuted as adults.
