Cast Interview for You Cant Break My Spirit: The Colours of Justice

Conference February 22, 2017 | AR-20170222-EQUAL-JUSTICE

Dwight Drummond reports on CBC NEWS at 6:00 pm Equal Justice Canada's Conference held February 22, 2017 at the University of Toronto's OISE Auditorium, and interviews the Key Note Speaker H. Roy Wellington on his life experience with the justice system.


Play from February 1, 2018 to February 28, 2018

You Can't Break My Spirit: The Colors of Justice is a play written by Equal Justice Canada staff and adapted into a Play by Equal Justice Canada and Donna Michelle Bernard. You Can't Break My Spirit is about creating Love, Peace and Victory in the midst of challenges. A young brown woman goes undercover into the Toronto Justice system so she can understand the experience of the people she serves in her missionary work. She expects to be released from jail after one night but instead is trapped in a system that will only release you if you plead guilty or have tens of thousands of dollars to pay lawyers who are experts in their field and are well connected. The faces around her are vulnerable and aggressive souls who have given up on any possibility of having a normal life, people who have lost everything; casually sacrificing their souls for momentary freedom and who are trapped in a cycle that seeks to destroy them. The protagonist encounters dishonesty, systemic and overt racism, politics, and injustices within the legal system and finally uncovers a system that does not work at every level. As she searches for solutions she finds the true meaning of love, courage and dignity. Her bravery, determination and persistent faith at every step of the journey is finally rewarded after spending two hundred thousand dollars and fighting for the freedom to live her life on her terms.
