Ways to Give

The Southern Center for Human Rights has been working to transform the criminal legal system in the Deep South for over 40 years. We continue to seek an end to the death penalty, debtor’s prisons, unconstitutional prison conditions, racially-biased policing and prosecution, the criminalization of poverty, and mass incarceration. We challenge injustice throughout the current system and work to realize the promise of equal justice under law. We cannot do it without YOU.
