The Champion Award

The Champion Award celebrates Pat’s legacy and belief that we should always strive to be part of something bigger than ourselves, by recognizing an individual for remarkable civic contributions, extraordinary fortitude and spirit of service.

Bryan Stevenson

2022 Champion Award

This year, we proudly present the 2022 Champion Award to Bryan Stevenson for his tireless advocacy for a more just and equitable legal system.

Bryan Stevenson is the founder and Executive Director of the Equal Justice Initiative. Under his leadership, EJI has won major legal challenges eliminating excessive and unfair sentencing, exonerating innocent death row prisoners, confronting abuse of the incarcerated and the mentally ill, and aiding children prosecuted as adults. He has argued and won multiple cases at the United States Supreme Court, and he and his staff have won reversals, relief, or release from prison for over 135 wrongly condemned prisoners on death row and won relief for hundreds of others wrongly convicted or unfairly sentenced. He also led the creation of the Legacy museum and the National Memorial for Peace and Justice and is the author of the bestselling memoir, Just Mercy.
