The Human Rights Coalition (HRC) is a grassroots non-profit group of predominately prisoners’ families, prisoners, ex-offenders and supporters. It was formed to aid and support prisoners’ families in coping with the stress and hardships created by having a loved one incarcerated, as well as to challenge the punitive, retributive nature of the penal system and to work to transform that to a model of rehabilitation and successful reintegration to society.

We are a community-based organization without paid staff. We are committed and dedicated, but we are not lawyers nor do we have the resources that would allow us to employ lawyers.

Our members and allies—both inside and outside the prison walls—share a common conviction in our hearts to fight injustice, and have no ulterior motivation of personal profit to do so.
