Who We Are
The first-ever National Prisoner's Family Conference was initiated in 2009 by Community Solutions of El Paso (a nonprofit organization serving prison families) to heighten awareness of the unique circumstances of the prison family. The conference has been held annually in various locations around the country to enable more to attend. At the 2012 conference a Prison Family Bill of Rights was drafted for use as an advocacy and discussion tool on behalf of the prison family.
The National Prisoner's Family Conference offers a forum for strengthening the voice of the prison family on behalf of themselves and their loved ones in prison through networking; sharing relevant information; education and advocacy.
