The Colorado Prison Law Project (CPLP) is a nonprofit public interest law office that seeks to protect the civil rights of Colorado prisoners. CPLP offers free legal services to prisoners incarcerated in jails and prisons throughout Colorado, including city, county, state, and federal facilities. CPLP seeks to assist inmates in cases regarding conditions of confinement, including challenges to unconstitutional disciplinary hearings, guard brutality, sexual assault, restriction on religious exercise, lack of access to medical care, and placement in segregation.

Where appropriate, CPLP will attempt to resolve prisoner complaints informally by advocating to prison officials. In instances where such informal advocacy is inappropriate or unsuccessful, CPLP will use litigation to challenge unlawful and harmful conditions in Colorado prisons.

CPLP currently has extremely limited staff and resources and is only able to provide legal services for a very few prisoners, but anyone who feels he or she has suffered a rights violation in custody is welcome to contact CPLC to find out what, if any, assistance can be provided.
