Join SPARC for a conversation with A.D. Lewis, Rita Lomio, and Jacob Hutt as they discuss their roles as lawyers at Prison Law Office. Prison Law Office is a nonprofit public interest law firm based in Berkeley, California that strives for fair and humane treatment of people who are in prisons, jails, and juvenile facilities and who are on parole. Issues tackled by PLO include failures to provide adequate medical, dental, and mental health services, lack of reasonable accommodations for people with disabilities, use of excessive force, racial discrimination, overcrowding, unsanitary living conditions, prolonged extreme solitary confinement, and due process violations. A.D., Rita, and Jacob will discuss and answer questions about conditions in California and Arizona prisons, recent litigation, and impact litigation more broadly. Lunch will be served.
