Lewisburg Prison Project

The Lewisburg Prison Project (LPP) counsels and assists prisoners who write to LPP when prisoners encounter treatment perceived as illegal or unfair. Their geographic coverage area includes four federal institutions (Allenwood, Lewisburg, McKean, and Schuylkill), 11 PA state prisons, and 34 county jails in the middle district of PA. LPP also distributes publications to prisoners nationwide at a nominal fee. A partial list of their Legal Bulletins includes the following titles: Legal Research, Religious Rights, First Amendment, Access to Courts, Exhausting Administrative Remedies, Disciplinary Hearings, Racial/Religious Discrimination, Assaults, and Medical Rights. LPP also distributes the Prisoners' Rights Handbook (2009, 142 pages) as well as other legal information by mail. Send an SASE for full list of available publications.
