Our Past Organizations - December 2019

December 2019: ArchCity Defenders
“ArchCity Defenders walks into the danger that most lawyers walk away from. They choose to go to the hard places. They aren’t intimidated by the challenge. They seek it out. They do the thankless work alongside organizers, activists, and community to protect the rights of those our society devalues. They are there after the cameras are gone and the 24-hour news cycle is up.” -Brittany Packnett, Activist, Educator, and Speaker
“ACD is a holistic legal advocacy organization that combats the criminalization if poverty and state violence, especially in communities of color. ACD’s foundation of civil and criminal legal representation, social services, impact litigation, policy and media advocacy, and community collaboration achieves and inspired justice and equitable outcomes for people throughout the St. Louis region and beyond.”
