Being sent to prison can be scary. You worry about your safety. You worry about your future. And, as you feel like the government is taking so much away from you, you can’t help but ask what rights you have left. That’s where How to Justice comes in.

When you find out your loved one is going to prison, your heart drops. Will they be safe? Can you stay in touch? Will you get to see them? How can you help them? How to Justice knows what you’re feeling and seeks to answer to all your questions.

The U.S. puts more people behind bars than any other country in the world. But it doesn’t do enough to help them when they’re released. We work with experts and justice-impacted people like you to get you the resources you need after release.
