Christian Theological Seminary’s Faith & Action Project is offering $200 grants to faith groups who will organize viewing and discussion sessions of the documentary “True Justice: Bryan Stevenson’s Fight for Equality.”
The 2019 HBO film, which won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Social Issue Documentary in 2020, chronicles Stevenson’s three decades of work with the Equal Justice Initiative in behalf of the poor, the incarcerated and the condemned.
CTS launched the Faith & Action Project in 2016 with the goal of bringing together faith communities, nonprofits, business and government in a collaborative effort to fight poverty. As part of its efforts, the project organizes an annual Fall Event to allow people in the community to hear national experts discuss issues and explore ideas.
As a prelude to Stevenson’s appearance at this year’s Faith & Action Fall Event on Oct. 5, CTS has launched an initiative to get the film seen and discussed in small groups.
Faith groups interested in hosting a True Justice viewing and discussion are encouraged to apply for a $200 stipend from CTS to support their event.
