DIY Self-Advocacy Workshop

To help more people facing challenges with the criminal justice system, we’ve developed a do-it-yourself workshop. The workshop assists people who want to help themselves through the challenging times ahead. We’re happy to offer this lower-cost alternative to the more personal services that our team of mitigation experts offer.

 

In this era of the First Step Act and the CARES Act, it’s more important than ever for people to engineer self-advocacy initiatives. This workshop offers ongoing support for people while they work toward the earliest possible release date. Simultaneously, the project generates resources to build our nonprofit, the Prison Professors Charitable Corporation. Through the nonprofit, we continue to gather information that help all justice-impacted people get a better outcome. For example, you may want to review our interviews with subject matter experts, including:

 

Federal Sentencing Judges

Chief US Probation Officer

Director of the Federal Bureau of Prisons

 

To start, let me introduce myself as your primary instructor. My name is Michael Santos. Please feel free to skip the background section below if you’re familiar with my journey. I offer the backstory for those who may want some information about the instructor.
