South Carolina Programs & Services

Root & Rebound’s South Carolina team advocates for the rights of people who have been harmed and marginalized by mass incarceration, seeking to increase access to justice and opportunity for people with records across South Carolina.

Overview of SC Programs

The South Carolina Root & Rebound team was able to take the three-pronged model of direct legal services, policy, and education and tailor that model to South Carolina’s specific needs. We are partnered with Soteria (a men’s reentry program led by Greenville-native Jerry Blassingame) and the two organizations form what is called the Second Chance Justice Collaborative (SCJC).

The South Carolina R&R office is composed of four attorneys hailing from diverse backgrounds in the criminal justice system.

Kate Weaver Patterson ([email protected]) is our managing attorney/site director as well as the Deputy Director of National Programs for the entire Root & Rebound organization.

Alesia Rico Flores ([email protected]) is the South Carolina Director of Systems Change.

Anastasia (“Ana”) Walker ([email protected]) is the South Carolina Director of Legal Services.

Allison Elder ([email protected]) is an Equal Justice Works Fellow (sponsored by the Leonard & Robert Weintraub Family Foundation) and attorney that specializes in family reunification and other family law matters.
