Michael B. Jordan and Oscar winners Jamie Foxx and Brie Larson star in “Just Mercy,” an inspiring drama that brings one of the most important stories of our time to the big screen.
Award-winning filmmaker Destin Daniel Cretton directed the film from a screenplay he co-wrote, based on the award-winning nonfiction bestseller by Bryan Stevenson.
A powerful and thought-provoking true story, “Just Mercy” follows young lawyer Bryan Stevenson (Jordan) and his history-making battle for justice. After graduating from Harvard, Bryan had his pick of lucrative jobs. Instead, he heads to Alabama to defend those wrongly condemned or who were not afforded proper representation, with the support of local advocate Eva Ansley (Larson). One of his first, and most incendiary, cases is that of Walter McMillian (Foxx), who, in 1987, was sentenced to die for the notorious murder of an 18-year-old girl, despite a preponderance of evidence proving his innocence and the fact that the only testimony against him came from a criminal with a motive to lie. In the years that follow, Bryan becomes embroiled in a labyrinth of legal and political maneuverings and overt and unabashed racism as he fights for Walter, and others like him, with the odds and the system stacked against them.

Stressed out about finals? Studying for long hours at the library? Miss your pets at home? This Sunday, December 8th, come to a therapy dog event the Rowe Center, Room 301, drop in anytime between 3:00-4:00pm. Pat a therapy dog and feel your stress melt away! Refreshments will be provided. Recent studies by researchers from British Columbia have shown that that even a single brief session with a therapy dog can considerably reduce stress and improve well‐being.
This event is hosted by UConn's Global Training and Development Institute (GTDI) in honor of the YSEALI Program's 6th Anniversary and its annual community service campaign known as YOUnified. YSEALI (Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative) is a grant program funded by the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Cultural Affairs. This fall, 42 participants from 11 countries in Southeast Asia came to UConn and Brown University to learn about social entrepreneurship and prepare to apply for a mini-grant to start their own social change projects in their home communities to address a local need. The next cohort of participants from Southeast Asia will arrive on campus after spring break 2020.
GTDI is partnering with Healers with Halos, a local pet therapy organization, to offer this program to the UConn Community. Staff from UConn's GTDI office will be present at the therapy dog event to answer any questions and provide information about the YSEALI program's goals and the related YOUnited Initiative. Posters of recent YSEALI alumni mini-projects in Southeast Asia, which have been funded through the YSEALI grant, will be displayed in the hallway for viewing.Contact Information: Global Training and Development Office More
