Letter, from ACCD to The Honorable Eric H. Holder, Jr.

By this letter, the ACCD called upon Attorney General Eric Holder and the Department of Justice to collaborate toward the accomplishment of three major goals: (1) creation of a permanent federal structure that protects and supports the right to counsel; (2) funding of necessary federal resources to support quality public defender services; and (3) provision of high-quality federally funded training for public defense managers, leaders and practitioners.
