The Habeas Corpus Resource Center (HCRC), located in San Francisco, represents indigent men and women under sentence of death in California.
The HCRC's mission is to provide timely, high-quality legal representation for indigent petitioners in death penalty habeas corpus proceedings before the California state courts and the federal courts.
The HCRC also recruits and trains attorneys to expand the pool of private counsel qualified to accept appointments in death penalty habeas corpus proceedings and serves as a resource to appointed counsel, thereby reducing the number of unrepresented indigents on California's death row.
