Signed and sent by Elena Paskel, this form postcard is from the Church, School, Fraternal and Social Services Groups of Philadelphia, who cooperate with the Scottsboro Case Committee of Philadelphia. The postcard enumerates the group's appeals in 1931 for a fair trial, in 1932 for clemency, in 1933 for change of venue and now requests "color-blind" justice in the form of freedom or clemency for the Scottsboro Boys. This form postcard is an example of a local organizing campaign responding to the Scottsboro trials.
