The Diocese of Atlanta Leads Us to Dismantle Racism
“Because racism works against our baptismal call to love others in the power of the spirit and to strive for justice and peace among all people, we seek to heal this chronic illness in our faith community through education, developing greater awareness of its existence in our ongoing spiritual formation. We will use prayer, intentional action, continued dialogue and the sharing of our personal and collective stories to help in facilitating the healing, transformation and reconciliation that will make it possible for us to truly see the face of God in all others.”

Mr. Stevenson, is the Executive Director of the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI) in Montgomery, Alabama, a professor of law at the New York University Law School and the author of the best seller Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption. Stevenson was a gifted young attorney when he founded the EJI, a legal practice dedicated to defending the poor, the wrongly condemned and those trapped in the furthest reaches of our criminal justice system.
