We need to talk about Justice

We often listen to TED as we work in the FRANK offices. When I came across this talk, I was compelled to listen to it twice. Bryan Stevenson is the founder and executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative, fighting poverty and challenging racial discrimination in the criminal justice system. His talk about justice pin points the flaws in believing whatever the world tells us. We have become disconnect and we have come to believe that others problems are not our problems.

Enjoy and share the talk if it inspires you to change the way you think about the world.

Here are some of my favourite points made by Bryan. –

“We love innovation, we love technology, we love creativity, we love entertainment, but ultimately those realities are shadowed by suffering, abuse, degradation, marginalization…It becomes necessary to integrate to the two..”

“[We need to spend] time thinking about, talking about the poor, the disadvantaged [and] thinking about them in a way that is integrated in our own lives.”

“Ive come to understand and beleive, that each of us is more than the worst thing we have ever done.” “Our humanity is tied to the humanity of everyone”
