The Courage and Faith speaker series hosted at Christ Church, and our next speaker is Bryan Stevenson, Executive Director of the Equal Justice Institute and author of the best-selling Just Mercy, who will be coming to Christ Church Greenwich on September 24 at 7:00pm.

Mr. Stevenson has won relief for dozens of condemned prisoners, argued five times before the Supreme Court, and won national acclaim for his work challenging bias against the poor and people of color. He has received numerous awards, including the MacArthur Foundation “Genius” Grant.”

Stevenson’s TED talk is one of the most viewed in the history of the series, with over three million hits. He was recently profiled in the New Yorker by Jeffrey Toobin.

Tickets are $30 ($40 with a copy of the book, which he will be signing afterwards), $15 for students.

Tickets available at courageandfaith.org and the Christ Church Bookstore. Books are available for pick up at the Christ Church Bookstore and at the event. Scholarships available. Email requests to: info@courageandfaith.org
