Atticus Finch personifies the forces against injustice. He stands up for what is right even in the face of insurmountable odds. Atticus defends Tom Robinson because he needs a defence and it is the right thing to do, "if I didn’t I couldn’t hold up my head in town, I couldn’t represent this county in the legislature ... I could never ask you to mind me again."
