We affirm that every person who is incarcerated, no matter their background, has the right to appropriate medical care. This right is guaranteed by the 8th Amendment of the Constitution. As medical professionals, we see it as our responsibility to protect this right.
We believe that people in prisons, jails, and detention centers deserve to be treated with dignity. We center our work, our language, and our actions in upholding the humanity and dignity of the people we serve.
We hold inclusion at the core of our work. We welcome opportunities to serve all incarcerated people, and invite volunteer clinicians of all backgrounds, identities, abilities, and beliefs to join us in our efforts.
