NCRJ is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that educates and advocates for child-protective laws and criminal justice practices based on science, fairness, and good sense; and supports people who are falsely accused or convicted of crimes against children. In the nation that leads the world in incarcerating its citizens — one in 100 adults is behind bars — we ally ourselves with others seeking to reform the criminal justice system to defend and promote the civil and human rights of all offenders.


PARC corresponds with and mails a directory of these resources to prisoners, their friends and family members. We are often the first point of contact for people to connect with prisoners' rights organizations, community organizations, prison literature and arts projects, family and visiting resources, health care and legal resources, parole and pre-release resources, and the prison abolition movement.


Through advocacy, public education and litigation, we work to ensure that a basic standard of care is provided to individuals who are incarcerated. We also work to decrease our community’s overreliance on mass incarceration by advocating for alternatives to incarceration and discharge planning to help reduce recidivism.


Inmates have constitutional rights under law.
