Learn how to expose human rights abuses happening to people from our communities, understand the legal and ethical framework for conducting legal visits, and hear from experienced investigators about how to navigate the prison system and how to write effective reports.

If you are a member of the Human Rights Pen Pal program, you are welcome to become a legal investigator!

This training is mandatory for all individuals who want to conduct legal visits in 2015, even if you have previously visited prisons with CPF.

New investigators must fill out a volunteer application and be willing to contribute to the mission and goals of the Prisoner Hunger Strike Solidarity Coalition and California Prison Focus.  Conducting visits is subject to the approval of the Prison Visits Program Director and the board of CPF.
