The thing that impacted me the most today was the Equal Justice Initiative. Anthony's story was so powerful, yet heartbreaking. I have heard many stories of people being wrongfully convicted, but I have never heard the story personally from the victim. Anthony Hintin was lucky to have the Equal Justice Initiative and Brian Stevenson to help the system fix the mistake that they would never admit to. I was brought to tears because he story was like so many others, but he was able to be free and this is why we need prison reform and eliminate the death penalty.
As a young activist it inspires me to keep working because we can bring change if we keep fighting.
