Who We Are

 

The Lewisburg Prison Project, Inc. is a non-profit organization that provides advocacy, information, and legal assistance regarding conditions of confinement. We are dedicated to the principle that prisoners are persons with incontestable human and constitutional rights


Lewisburg Prison Project was founded in 1973 by concerned citizens of Lewisburg, PA who desired to ensure that the local prisons were operating humanely and according to law.

What We Do


 

The Lewisburg Prison Project assists inmates with the conditions of their confinement. We provide inmates across the United States with information and legal bulletins regarding conditions of confinement. This includes prisoners’ rights to personal safety, adequate medical care, religious freedom, freedom of speech; access information, and a safe, clean environment.

In the Middle District of PA, we are able to advocate for and provide civil legal advice and assistance to inmates regarding violations of their constitutional rights. The Middle District of PA includes the Allenwood Federal Correctional Complex, USP Lewisburg, USP Canaan, and FCI Schuylkill. In addition, there are twelve PA DOC state prisons, and 33 county jails.

 

The Lewisburg Prison Project is an affiliate of the PA Institutional Law project.

We do not assist with criminal or habeas cases.
