Gifts for the Philanthropist
UNIVERSAL CIVIL RIGHTS:
The ACLU and Southern Poverty Law Center have been fighting for equity and tolerance since the post-WWI years and the Civil Rights Movement respectively, but their work is by no means done. Both offer annual memberships that make convenient gifts.
Brian Stevenson has been fighting on behalf of our country’s most disenfranchised groups, death row inmates and incarcerated youth, for years through his Alabama-based organization, the Equal Justice Initiative. Donations further their work by enabling them to take on more clients—a critical task, given the current state of court-appointed representation.
