Watch: "Just Mercy" Event (Plus Resources to Take Action)

Just Mercy event blog header

Redeemer Downtown and Hope for New York recently co-hosted the event, Connecting Just Mercy with Justice in New York City.

In June, Redeemer Downtown asked congregants to watch the movie, Just Mercy, which is based on Bryan Stevenson's memoir, and then join a group discussion. To encourage their community to take further action toward biblical justice, Downtown and HFNY then invited three HFNY affiliates to talk more about criminal and racial injustice issues in NYC.

Community Connections for Youth, Prison Fellowship, and Youth For Christ were part of an online panel to share about their organizations and their experiences. Watch the virtual event below, and then find the resources to serve these organizations:

We hope this event will encourage you to remain consistent in pursuing biblical justice in our city, especially as it relates to criminal justice!
