We defend the Bronx.

Still She Rises, Tulsa

In 2016, Still She Rises Tulsa was launched as a project of the Bronx Defenders with the goal of using our holistic defense model to build something completely new: the nation’s first public defender office dedicated exclusively to representing mothers targeted by the criminal justice system. What better place to launch a project focused on this crisis than in the state of Oklahoma, which continues to incarcerate women at a higher rate than any other state in the country?

In less than three years, the Still She Rises Tulsa team of criminal, civil and family attorneys, working in conjunction with a social worker, civil legal advocate, and community reception coordinator, represented and fiercely advocated on behalf of nearly 1000 women in Tulsa. In July 2019, Still She Rises Tulsa proudly embarked on its next chapter as an independent nonprofit as they continue to transform legal advocacy in the North Tulsa community.
