I celebrate The Right Livelihood Foundation’s selection of Bryan Stevenson for this year’s honoree. A highlights of my time with Public Counsel was hearing Bryan Stevenson’s acceptance speech at the 2016 William O. Douglas Award Dinner. He spellbound the room with his passionate plea that we must do more to confront the injustices of systemic racism in the United States. I had the honor of meeting Bryan, as the Award Dinner featured my work enjoining Pomona’s unlawful practice of seizing and destroying the personal property of its residents experiencing homelessness. Mr. Stevenson stands as a towering example of what attorneys can accomplish when we put the fight for justice before all else. Here's a picture of Bryan Stevenson with my clients and my wonderful colleague, Azadeh Hosseinian, who worked so hard on the case.
