Thank you, Sara [Totonchi], for that very kind introduction; and along with [President] Stephen Bright, for your bold leadership of this outstanding organization; and for your dedication, throughout your career, to tackling the toughest cases fearlessly. It’s truly a privilege to join so many devoted public servants, engaged advocates and innovative policymakers for today’s symposium. For four decades – through litigation, research and advocacy – the Southern Center for Human Rights has challenged discriminatory practices across the justice system: from jury selection, to correctional facilities, to capital cases. You’ve fought to make the promise of the right to counsel a reality. And you’ve addressed the indignities that result when private probation companies profit off the poor and deprive them of due process. Throughout these efforts and so many others over the past 40 years, you’ve led the charge to make our criminal justice system more just.
