Nonprofit Spotlight - Prison Law Office

Dr. Faustino Bernadett and his wife Dr. Martha Molina Bernadett are highlighting Prison Law Office in this Nonprofit Spotlight.

Founded in 1976 by Michael Satris and Paul Comiskey, the Prison Law Office originally focused on conditions of confinement issues in California state prisons.

Over the years, they have expanded their reach to advocate for people in California state prisons for adults and juveniles, Arizona state prisons, and California county jails and juvenile halls. Issues tackled by the Office 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.

Dr. Faustino Bernadett and his wife Dr. Martha Molina Bernadett chose to highlight this organization because of its focus on supporting the health aspect of those in state prisons and juvenile halls.

When looking to support an organization, Dr. Faustino Bernadett and his wife Dr. Martha Bernadett focus on causes that reduce disparities in access to education and health. They have a special focus on working with organizations which are making measurable impacts in the lives of children and families.
