Philadelphia Bar Foundation Grant Impact
With the support of the Philadelphia Bar Foundation, the Atlantic Center for Capital representation (ACCR) has seen a dramatic change in the landscape of the death penalty in Pennsylvania. Slowly but surely, ACCR's efforts to change the conversation have been an astounding success, and the death penalty is closer to its end than ever before.
ACCR is a key resource in the Atlantic region for defense teams and their clients, legislators, public officials, criminal justice reform assemblies, death penalty advocacy groups, media outlets, and concerned citizens of Pennsylvania, and across the entire United States.
