The Parole Handbook: A Guide to the Parole Consideration Process for Families of People in Prison

Authored By: Southern Center for Human Rights

Georgians for Equal Justice wrote this handbook to help people in prison and their families get the information they need, in a way they can understand, from a source that cares about the basic human rights of every Georgia prisoner and his or her family. It is hoped that this handbook will help all people who are considered for parole and their family members had better understand the current parole process. It is also hoped that this handbook will be a first step toward changing the balance of power between a state agency that has ultimate control over the lives of hundreds of thousands citizens, and the citizens themselves.
