Founded in October 2014, Amistad Law Project advocates for the recognition of the human rights of all people and believes in the intersection of movements against systemic oppression.

ALP consists of attorneys, activists, and organizers. We are prison abolitionists who view the prison industrial complex as directly related to the massive divestment from our communities the things that make them safe and strong. We believe that good public education, affordable health care, healthy and affordable food, safe and affordable housing, and the ability to care for our families, no matter what they look like, are human rights.
