The Prisoners’ Rights Project (PRP) protects the legal rights of prisoners in the New York City jails and the New York State prisons through litigation, advice and assistance to individual prisoners, legislative advocacy and public education. PRP is a nationally known law reform office and members of its staff regularly consult with other prisoner advocates locally and nationally, testify in legislative forums and work directly with legislators, and work with other professional and human rights organizations concerned with the protection of prisoners.
