Terrica Redfield Ganzy and Atteeyah Hollie, who have a combined 35 years of service to SCHR, will be the first Black women to lead the organization.|
In 2004, Ms. Ganzy began her nine-year tenure as a Staff Attorney in the Capital Litigation Unit, where she represented people on death row in Georgia and Alabama. Ms. Ganzy went on to serve for four years as SCHR’s Development Director, fueling a robust fundraising strategy that helped to double SCHR’s budget to support the organization’s rapid growth. Ms. Ganzy was appointed as Deputy Director of SCHR in 2018. Read more.
Except for a three-year break to attend law school, Ms. Hollie has been at the Southern Center since 2002. She has litigated cases challenging the denial of the right to counsel for poor Georgians, illegally closed courtrooms, wealth-based detention, inhumane prison conditions, and the denial of utility services because of court debt. She has also helped to spearhead SCHR’s efforts to end extreme sentencing in Georgia. She most recently served as the Managing Attorney of the Impact Litigation Unit. Read more.
Ms. Roberts joined SCHR in April 2018 as the Community Engagement & Movement Building Counsel. She has practiced criminal defense since 2008, first as a public defender with the Atlanta Judicial Circuit Public Defender and later as a solo practitioner. A community organizer, a significant portion of Ms. Roberts’ private practice was dedicated to the pro bono representation of activists and organizers. Read more.
Christina Remlin will now lead SCHR’s Impact Litigation Unit. Ms. Remlin brings extensive civil rights litigation experience fighting educational neglect, violence, inadequate medical care, inappropriate conditions, over-institutionalization, and unconscionable conditions of confinement in precedent-setting cases on behalf of system-involved youth in the Deep South.
