What is the best way to promote justice and equality in society?

Justice and equality are vital components to a well-functioning civil society, and it takes watchdogs to ensure these principles are not trampled on. Bryan Stevenson has been a passionate advocate for justice and equality through his Equal Justice Initiative, which has won major legal battles regarding unfair sentencing, exonerating innocent death row prisoners, and confronting the abuse of the incarcerated and the mentally ill. These are a few areas where justice and equality must be safeguarded, but many more exist.
