Our Work

More than 50% of Parole Prep's budget comes directly from individual donations. 


Your contributions help support our parole preparation program, community engagement work and so much more. 


In 2023, Parole Prep formed our first in-house Litigation Unit. Staff attorneys have their own docket of cases and also train pro bono attorneys to represent incarcerated people in a variety of legal matters. 

Litigation We Pursue

We primarily focus on appealing denials of parole release, challenging the Parole Board's determinations through the administrative appeals process and then in Supreme Court.


We also file habeas petitions, medical parole applications, and other incarceration-related petitions.

Appealing a parole denial holds the Board accountable, ensures better transparency, and gives applicants another chance to fight for the freedom they deserve.

Interested attorneys or firms can inquire below. We'll provide an introductory training as well as access to our Parole Attorneys Listserv, where we discuss cases and announce available pro bono opportunities.

Want To Volunteer?

We welcome attorneys from a variety of practice areas.

"As a Pro Bono attorney, I felt supported in every step of the advocacy process.

From their thorough volunteer training to their attentiveness and creativity in supporting my legal work, it was clear to me that every member of the Parole Prep team cared as deeply about the liberation of my client as I did. 


It has been a distinct honor for me to be a part of this beautiful community."
