THE PROBLEM

2.3 million people are incarcerated in the US.

They suffer disproportionately from chronic health conditions, their acute
medical needs often go unmet, and the carceral healthcare system that serves
them is set up to fail by a lack of resources and infrastructure. The pandemic has
only magnified the health crisis that is the norm in the US prison system

Our solution

Medical Justice Alliance (MJA) mobilizes volunteer healthcare professionals 

to protect incarcerated people’s constitutional right to medical care.

We recruit and train volunteers to offer expert witness services in lifechanging 

legal cases, and engage in education and advocacy work.
