Brie Larson was honored at Variety‘s Power of Women luncheon presented by Lifetime on Friday, and talked about her upcoming film “Just Mercy” and the Equal Justice Initiative.

Larson portrays Eva Ansley, who co-founded the Equal Justice Initiative, in “Just Mercy,” and revealed what she learned from Ansley while making the film.

“Where can you gain to listen and where can you bring hope?” Larson asked the audience. “Can you help us to live in a hope that exists as not just a thought, but a process of ceaseless effort? We all have busy lives, but I can guarantee you that you can do more.”
