AAFS Keynote Speaker Bryan Stevenson
"Each of us is more than the worst thing we've ever done."
Bryan Stevenson is the founder and Executive Director of the Equal Justice Initiative, a human rights organization in Montgomery, Alabama. Under his leadership, EJI has won major legal challenges eliminating excessive and unfair sentencing, exonerating innocent death row prisoners, confronting abuse of the incarcerated and the mentally ill, and aiding children prosecuted as adults.
The Perlmutter Center for Legal Justice at Cardozo Law trains students and lawyers in the proper use of scientific evidence, focusing on the misuse of "junk science" in contributing to wrongful convictions. In addition the Center seeks justice for those individuals incarcerated with excessive sentences through parole work and clemency requests. The Perlmutter Center was established through a $15-million philanthropic donation from the Laura and Isaac Perlmutter Foundation. Isaac "Ike" Perlmutter is the Chairman of Marvel Entertainment. Laura Perlmutter is a Director of the Laura and Isaac Perlmutter Foundation.
