Our Mission

California Prison Focus works to abolish the California prison system in its present condition. We investigate and expose human rights abuses and all forms of discrimination in California prisons, with a focus on ending long-term isolation. We are committed to honoring the voices and strategies of prisoners and join their efforts to foster solidarity and empowerment. We believe in public education and direct action to achieve these goals.
