WE RAISE BOOK CLUB

We seek to be continually learning about the issues our communities are facing in order to serve those around us. The We Raise Book Club reflects our commitment to raising up issues and leaders. Regularly, our book club will feature and give away copies of books we find relevant to our focus areas.

PLEASE NOTE: We acknowledge that there are a wide variety of opinions and responses to the issues our communities are facing. We believe that a posture of learning requires an open mind and a willingness to engage with ideas and opinions different from your own. While our team does have criteria for featured books, inclusion of a book in the We Raise Book Club does not imply endorsement of the author or their opinions.

Featured Book

Criminal Justice

Just Mercy

By Bryan Stevenson

“Bryan Stevenson was a young lawyer when he founded the Equal Justice Initiative, a legal practice dedicated to defending those most desperate and in need: the poor, the wrongly condemned, and women and children trapped in the farthest reaches of our criminal justice system. One of his first cases was that of Walter McMillian, a young man who was sentenced to die for a notorious murder he insisted he didn’t commit. The case drew Bryan into a tangle of conspiracy, political machination, and legal brinksmanship—and transformed his understanding of mercy and justice forever.”
