The Southern Coalition for Social Justice, founded in 2007, promotes justice by empowering minority and low-income communities to defend and advance their political, social and economic rights. It seeks to use the combined skills of lawyers, social scientists, community organizers and media experts to help underrepresented people develop strategies to achieve their visions for themselves and their communities.
Its goals are to:
- Create a worker-managed entity that is a fulfilling community to nurture and sustain social justice work and workers;
- Provide the highest quality legal advice and representation to poor and minority communities engaged in social change efforts;
- Bring the best social science research, communications strategies and community organizing skills to serve community priorities;
- Have substantive priorities that are community-determined; and
- Build coalitions across community lawyering organizations in the South and between national organizations and local community groups.
