The Atlantic Center for Capital Representation (ACCR)

Atlantic Center for Capital Representation (ACCR)

The Atlantic Center for Capital Representation (ACCR) is a non-profit death penalty and juvenile life without parole sentencing and resentencing resource center providing consultation and mitigation services, legal advocacy, education, and training to combat the death penalty and juvenile life without parole sentences in Pennsylvania.

Launched in 2010, ACCR has three distinct missions: to ensure that every individual facing the death penalty or a juvenile life without parole sentence receives the best legal representation possible; to prevent wrongful capital convictions and executions; and to work for systemic reforms that address issues such as racial and class discrimination, ineffective counsel, cruel and unusual punishment, police and prosecutorial misconduct and the multitude of other issues inherent in the administration and application of the death penalty and juvenile life without parole sentences.

Since its inception, ACCR has functioned as an independent, creative and determined advocate for the local and global reform of our nation’s criminal justice system. Based in Philadelphia, ACCR has emerged as a reputable source of information and analysis about legal precedent and public policy issues. 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.
