NEPA Prison Advocates

The NEPA Prison Advocates is a consortium of individuals and organizations devoted to helping inmates and those previously incarcerated in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Our focus is (1) direct advocacy (individual inmate issues), (2) accountability and transparency and (3) programming and reentry. Our goals include making prisons and jails safer, fairer and more humane. We also seek to help prevent recidivism. If you have a friend or loved one experiencing issues while incarcerated or facing reentry challenges, please message us. We will do our best to help you and direct you to community resources.
