About Us

Amistad Law Project (ALP) is comprised of lawyers, legal workers, and organizers. We are prison abolitionists who view the prison industrial complex as directly related to the massive divestment from our communities of the things that make them safe and strong. We believe that good public education, affordable health care, healthy and affordable food, safe and affordable housing, and the ability to care for our families are human rights.

Our mission is to fight for the human rights of people in our community by providing free legal services to Philadelphians and those incarcerated in Pennsylvania’s prisons. Additionally, we advocate for laws and policies that reflect our vision for a new justice paradigm and organize events and activities to educate the public on their rights and the law.

Our vision is to abolish the prison industrial complex and create alternative systems of accountability and healing while reducing the harm of the system in the meantime.
