Prisons are used only for people who absolutely must be incarcerated. And for these who are incarcerated, they should be given all the rehabilitative opportunities they need to turn their lives around.
Prisoners should have:
Safe, sanitary living conditions
Access to adequate medical care
Access to send and receive mail
Ability to contact family by telephone
Proper and nutritious diet
Adequate mental health care where appropriate
Access to meaningful grievance process
CURE believes that a person is sent to prison as punishment and not for punishment!
