Contact your regional advocacy team:
CAEFS offers support and advocacy to federally incarcerated women and gender-diverse people. This work is mostly done through our 5 regional advocacy teams, who make regular advocacy visits to the federal prisons designated for women.
In between visits, our teams can be contacted through our regional advocacy phone lines. These lines are toll-free and are on the common access list in their corresponding region (this means that you, or the person you are supporting, do not need to wait for our number to be added to their PIN).

Read our “Human Rights in Action” handbook. This handbook is designed to help women and gender diverse people incarcerated in federal prisons understand and access their rights. In it, we answer over 100 frequently asked questions and provide guidance on accessing remedies and resolutions when your rights have been violated.
Contact your local Elizabeth Fry Society:
CAEFS membership is comprised of 24 Elizabeth Fry Societies from coast to coast. As a network, we specialize in programs that support criminalized and vulnerable people in our communities, with a particular focus on women. These supports include:
Each Elizabeth Fry Society will offer somewhat different programs and services, so be sure to check out their website to see how they can support you.
CAEFS legal work is systemic, and we do not represent individual people.
If you, or someone you are supporting, is currently incarcerated and requires legal representation for a disciplinary hearing or other prison-law matter please contact your regional advocacy team for a referral.
Some local Elizabeth Fry Societies also offer free legal clinics. Check with your local Elizabeth Fry Society.
Monday – Thursday from 9:00am – 5:00pm Eastern (Ottawa) Time
