In response to this question (and you can find a couple more links in that post). Keep ’em coming, y’all.
A large list of resources focusing on legal rights from Sara Mayeux. Some of these links may be outdated but there’s a portion of the list which is broken up by state, which I’m guessing will be really useful to many of you.

I’m an advocate on homelessness in San Francisco and a group we collaborate with that works more specifically on issues in our prison system is CURB. The website is okay, but you will find more up to date info on their FB page. The advocacy work is connected in many ways even though it tends to be on a state level, but that might be a good start even if the reader isn’t in CA.Here are some good videos series on the subject…US Prison Population: The Largest in the WorldWhy Is the U.S. Prison Population So Large?And Frontline has done a number of excellent pieces on it. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/locked-up-in-america/
And I want to plug Restorative Justice Online again. Spend some time there with the stories, and do a search for your own city or region to see what’s available.
