Gideon’s Promise shines a light on shortcomings in the justice system
It’s been 52 years since the The 1963 Supreme Court case Gideon v. Wainwright, which recognized all Americans have a Constitutional right to counsel, regardless of their ability to pay for it. In tandem with this decision and in honor of the first anniversary of Atlanta’s Center for Civil and Human Rights, Gideon’s Promise co-hosted a criminal justice panel discussion featuring Sara Totonchi, executive director of the Southern Center for Human Rights and Jonathan Rapping, MacArthur Genius Fellow.
