Unfortunately, there are many people who are serving time in our prisons today. It is even more unfortunate that while these people are paying dearly for what they did by serving out their sentences, they are, often times, deprived of the most basic civil rights that we all take for granted in this nation. While we may all agree that one has to suffer the consequences of his/her actions when breaking the law, it follows that we also agree that the laws of the land must be upheld under all circumstances. This means that while a person is incarcerated, he/she is still entitled to his/her basic rights under the constitution. Prisoner Rights Advocates are the people who see that this remains true.

What is a prisoner rights advocate?

Simply put, prisoner rights advocates are people who play a vital role in assuring that inmates across the nation have their rights protected. They are people who dedicate themselves to this cause and work diligently to preserve the law of the land for the free, as well as the imprisoned.

Success Stories

I was incredibly happy with the site. I thought it was very easy to use; had significantly more postings than any other site (or combination of sites); and provided a lot of useful information. (the number, and caliber, of job postings). Exactly what I was looking for – I have 5 years’ experience and was looking for a lateral move or an in-house position, and that’s exactly what I found!
