Our Work

Legal Advocacy

The primary goal of our legal advocacy program is to protect the civil rights of prisoners in Texas. We focus on impact litigation to help the largest number of prisoners possible.

Our legal advocacy program is based on input from our members, their family members, and the affected community. The Prison Justice League challenges issues that we believe will have a positive impact system-wide. Due to our limited resources and focused mission, we do not get involved with individual issues that prisoners are experiencing if it isn’t also represented as an overall problem throughout the system.

We do not assist prisoners with wrongful conviction cases or other criminal legal matters.
