contribute to the important work of SCHR

Why Donate to SCHR?

The Southern Center for Human Rights has been working to transform the criminal justice system in the Deep South for 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. 

How You Can Help

Partner with us as we reimagine equal justice by working to achieve true fairness in the criminal justice system. We welcome gifts by credit card, check, electronic fund transfers, and gifts of stocks or other securities.

We encourage you to join our Pillars of Justice Society. Members of our Pillars of Justice Society sustain our work through recurring fits that provide a consistent source of funding. Society members receive special communications about the impact of their contributions, discounted pricing to SCHR events, and special recognition in our publications. Join today
