Vision 

The Prisoners' Rights Clinic is an organized group of jailhouse lawyers, paralegals, law students, activists, and volunteers who work to reform the criminal legal system by using litigation, legislation, and administrative process. The Prisoners' Rights Clinic will work to change laws and policies that deny people under corrections control their dignity and their human and civil rights. The Prisoners' Rights Clinic will serve its clients by drafting pleadings, letters, and other documents for the clients use in legal matters. The Prisoners Rights' Clinic will also prepare reports, position papers, and proposed legislation to provide lawmakers in hopes of obtaining patronage. The Prisoners' Rights Clinic will propose new provisions, recessions of provisions, and amendments to existing provisions in administrative regulations while also proposing new procedures and practices within the corrections system. The Prisoners' Rights Clinic will also compose pamphlets, zines, newsletters, memorandums, bulletins, etc. that educate their clients of current prisoners rights law, prison policies, and methods for protecting the rights of prisoners and their loved ones. The Prisoners' Rights Clinic will receive grants, donations, gifts, endowments, and other contributions from corporations, government agencies, civil rights orgs., and individuals who support the organizational mission and vision.
