Yes, some of the people you care for will either spend time in jail or prison OR will have a family member in jail or prison.  It can help to have those resources close at hand.

Prisoner Rights

The ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) seems to be a good resource, maybe the only resource, for neglect and abuse in jail or prison.  This link happens to be the local Colorado office, but in the column at the right of the ACLU page you will find the other states.


One Response to “Prisoner Rights”

  1. Daniel Rush Says:

    Hello my name is Daniel Rush and I’m a second year student at Shoreline Community College, in Shoreline, Washington. I’m currently in the school’s Honors Program and I have to complete a dissertation. The topic that I chose was the reentry of inmates into society and recidivism. I’m two years away from receiving my degree in Psychology, and I need all of the information that I can get on your website. I’m looking at state and national resources for released prisoners, and I don’t know where to start. The reason I am so interested in this topic, is because I was dishonorably discharged from the Army in 2001 and ended up serving almost three years for Assault. I acknowledge my mistakes, but I do not wish to carry the heavy stigma of being convicted of a federal offense. I figure my best chances of turning my story into one of success, is to receive the highest education possible, and volunteer to get experience. I would appreciate any help and information about your organization. Thanks, Daniel Rush
