HUMAN RIGHTS COALITION
WHO WE ARE
The Human Rights Coalition (HRC) is a grassroots non-profit group of currently and formerly incarcerated people, their families, and supporters. It was formed to support 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.
WHAT WE DO
Toxic Prisons. Solitary Confinement. Lack of response to the COVID 19 crisis. Police Brutality. Voting rights for incarcerated citizens, organizing formerly incarcerated people into a Formerly Incarcerated Citizens Union for elections, and ending Felony Disenfranchisement of Incarcerated Citizens serving prison sentences for a felony conviction. These are just some of the issues we are organizing around. Learn more about our work below.
Since 2001, HRC has published The Movement, a powerful voice for public awareness that serves both to connect incarcerated people to the outside world and to plug the public into issues affecting incarcerated people. It represents the voices, faces, causes, and ideas of incarcerated people and their families.
