Prison Grievances is part graphic novel, part how-to guide on prison grievances and litigation. Written with a focus on navigating the administrative remedy process used in the Texas Department of Corrections, Prison Grievances is a terrific introduction to the grievance process for any prisoner whose civil rights are imperiled by official action.
Part One of Prison Grievances is a punchy tale of a volunteer lawyer teaching a group of prisoners about filing properly prepared grievances and how those grievances make their way through the prison and judicial systems. Prison Grievances illuminates the subject matter with terrific comic-book/graphic novel illustrations that bring the story to life. It is an excellent primer to grievances for the average prisoner with no legal background.
Part Two, the Workbook Section, offers a comprehensive list of checklists on various subjects of prisoner concern, to assist in organizing claims of excessive force, life endangerment, religious discrimination, medical issues, and a host of other matters that implicate a prisoner's health and safety and quality of life.
Called "an important tool for prisoners and their families" by the Executive Director of the ACLU of Texas, Prison Grievances provides a great deal of important information in an easy-to-understand form.
