We are very excited to announce that the keynote speaker for the Saturday dinner will be MacArthur Foundation Fellow, NYU Law Professor and executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative, Bryan Stevenson, who will discuss major legal challenges eliminating excessive and unfair sentencing, exonerating innocent prisoners on death row, and aiding children prosecuted as adults. In 2012, Professor Stevenson received the longest standing ovation in the history of TED talks at the conclusion of his presentation, “We Need to Talk about an Injustice.” Stevenson was most recently featured on the Colbert Report.
