Mission Statement

California Prison Focus works to expose and end human rights abuses against incarcerated people in California by working in solidarity with and elevating the voices of those most impacted.


We stand up strong against the abusive conditions of the California prison system, and advocate for an end to prolonged solitary confinement. We are an all-volunteer organization and operate entirely on individual donations and small grants.Volunteers and our incarcerated correspondents are the lifeblood of CPF.

Quarterly Newspaper: Prison Focus, is distributed free to SHU prisoners and at a small cost to former prisoners, their family, activists and friends of CPF. Our paper is primarily written by and for prisoners, their friends and families with volunteers editing and contributing some content. Past issues and articles are available on our website.

Prison Visits: We travel regularly to Pelican Bay and Corcoran state prisons to uncover and disseminate information on the current conditions prisoners must endure. We have been conducting prisoner interviews in California’s SHU facilities since 1991, logging more than 1,000 interviews across 50 visits. Our finding are published in our newspaper and other publications.

Prisoner Correspondence: We receive dozens of letters from prisoners each week. We always need help to sort through these letters, document them, and respond to prisoners' requests and needs.
