SCSJ represents individuals and community-based organizations in cases centered around justice system reform, voter rights, and environmental justice. We believe in creating the potential for structural change that will benefit underserved communities and have positive implications for racial justice, election protection, and environmental preservation. Our litigation extends to nonpartisan groups and people of color in local and statewide redistricting litigation across the South, and we have represented clients before the United States Supreme Court.
