Highlights from Justice Taking Root 2019

On Tuesday, May 7th, the Southern Center for Human Rights hosted our Annual Benefit Reception Justice Taking Root at The Foundry at Puritan Mill in Atlanta.

We were honored to present our 2019 Luminary Award to Donald F. Samuel, Partner at Garland, Samuel, and Loeb, and our Inaugural 2019 Vanguard Award to L. Chris Stewart, Managing Partner at Stewart Trial Attorneys, for their extraordinary contributions to justice and fairness!

Thank you to all who attended and supported this remarkable evening. Your generous support makes our work possible!
