Southern Center for Human Rights
Share |

The Southern Center for Human Rights (SCHR) is working for equality, justice, and dignity in our criminal justice system. SCHR's mission is to end capital punishment, mass incarceration, and other criminal justice practices that are used to control the lives of poor people, people of color, and other marginalized groups in the Southern United States. We do this through death penalty representation, impact litigation, policy advocacy, and public education.


Over the last forty years, thanks to the generous support of our donors, SCHR has put our beliefs to work every day to undo injustice. Now, more than ever, we are relying on your continued support to provide zealous, effective capital representation and launch and win bold, effective lawsuits and campaigns that balance the scales of justice.

Our success in the struggle for justice depends on the partnership of individuals like you who believe as we do that justice is worth fighting for and it cannot wait.

$10 – Allows us to purchase snacks for our clients when we visit them in prison.  For many of our clients, our visits are among the very few they have each year.

$25 – Buys stamps for 50 response letters to the many people in prison or their family members who contact us daily with their tragic stories of encounters with the criminal justice system. Our letter is sometimes the only response they receive.

$50 – Covers the cost of printing and mailing 25 parole handbooks, a helpful resource to people in prison who are eligible for parole and may soon reenter society.

$100 – Covers the cost of one gift card for our newly released clients to help them purchase essential items they need to successfully transition back into the community.

$250 – Covers travel to collect evidence to support SCHR lawsuits that ensure that the right to counsel for the poor is upheld, challenge predatory private probation companies, and end inhumane prison conditions.

$500 – Covers the costs of printing Know Your Rights pamphlets on misdemeanor probation in Georgia that communities can use to protect themselves from illegal practices that criminalize people simply for being too poor to pay fines for misdemeanor offenses.
