WHY EJI?

As events around racial reckoning unfolded this year, I grappled with what I could do to make a difference in addressing systemic racism. As I was researching, I was made aware of Bryan Stevenson's Equal Justice Initiative. I am very proud to be supporting such an active organization! 

Mission Statement

"The Equal Justice Initiative is committed to ending mass incarceration and excessive punishment in the United States, to challenging racial and economic injustice, and to protecting basic human rights for the most vulnerable people in American society."
