Formerly the Southern Public Defender Training Center, Atlanta-based nonprofit Gideon’s Promise aims to transform the criminal justice system by building a movement of public defenders who provide equal justice for marginalized communities. Public defenders are crucial to the realization of equal justice in America; yet, they are a group that is often under-supported. Gideon’s Promise provides comprehensive training and community support to sustain the passion of public defenders, so that they may continue to be voices for the voiceless.

JusticeAid partnered with Gideon’s Promise in 2013. See event page here.
