    This year we will depart from the usual single reading selection and read several selections of books chosen by the Religious Action Center’s RAC Reads program. Honoring the Reform movement’s impulse to promote learning and discussion about matters of social justice through books, and honoring the celebration of the MLK National holiday in January, we begin with this powerful and eloquent study by Bryan Stevenson. In Just Mercy, Bryan Stevenson draws on his years of experience as a lawyer and advocate for prisoners wrongly sentenced to death to craft a poweful narrative about the deep racial and socioeconomic disparities in the criminal justice system.
