California Prison Focus is a human rights organization whose mission is to shut down the solitary confinement units in California prisons and to end long term isolation, medical neglect, and all forms of discrimination.

We advocate for the needs and demands of prisoners in the isolation units (SHUs) and publicize abuses and prison conditions.  Our work includes public education, demonstrations, campaigns to persuade government officials,  and litigation. We publish a newspaper of prison-related news and opinion, Prison Focus, several times a year.”

There are many volunteer opportunities available, from working in the office to outreach. Email, include “Volunteer” in your  subject line.
