Join us on July 21 at 7:30 PM for a presentation and community discussion of Just Mercy, led by Benjamin Schaefer from the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI). Come hear and share reflections on how EJI's work has evolved, and deepen our education on how we as an Adas community can work to understand and eradicate systemic racism. We recommend reading the Just Mercy book and/or watching the film in advance of this event. This program is a project of the Social Action Committee and the (now postponed) racial justice trip to Montgomery, AL. We plan to hold a companion series in the fall, using the book "How to be an Anti-Racist" as a vehicle for self-reflection in the month of Elul. 

Benjamin Schaefer is a staff attorney at the Equal Justice Initiative, based in Montgomery, Alabama. Schaefer graduated in 2011 from New York University School of Law, where he participated in the Equal Justice and Capital Defender Clinic and interned at the Orleans Public Defenders in Louisiana.
