Just Mercy, a 2019 film focusing on racial injustice, is now available free from multiple providers through the end of June. The Warner Bros. movie stars Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Foxx and Brie Larson.

“Just Mercy, based on the life work of civil rights attorney Bryan Stevenson, is one resource we can humbly offer to those who are interested in learning more about the systemic racism that plagues our society,” Warner Bros. posted. “To actively be part of the change our country is so desperately seeking, we encourage you to learn more about our past and the countless injustices that have led us to where we are today.”

Outlets offering Just Mercy for free include Amazon, Apple TV, Fandango Now, Google Play, iTunes, Microsoft, Redbox, Vudu and YouTube.

Just Mercy focuses on one of Stevenson’s cases: a wrongly condemned death row prisoner. Warner Bros. suggests checking out eji.org to learn more about Stevenson and his Equal Justice Initiative.
