Bryan Stevenson, executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative, has been elected a member of the prestigious American Academy of Arts and Sciences for his accomplishments with the EJI, NYU reports:

The American Academy of Arts and Sciences elected 204 new members this year, including Nobel Prize winner in chemistry Dan Shechtman; Pulitzer Prize winners Jules Feiffer, a cartoonist, and Annie Proulx, a novelist; and director and actor Al Pacino.  The academy challenges its own—leaders from the academic, business, and government sectors—to address challenges facing society. “The knowledge and expertise of our members give the Academy a unique capacity—and responsibility—to provide practical policy solutions to the pressing challenges of the day,” says Don Randel, chair of the academy’s board of directors. “We look forward to engaging our new members in this work.”
