Project Protocol creates more equitable relationships through building community and accountability

the problem

The parole system lacks transparency, consistency, and accountability into how parole officers will conduct themselves,

enhancing the vulnerability of an already at-risk community. Those on parole can’t voice their grievances without fear of retaliation, by way of requiring ankle monitoring or incarceration for a technical violation.

the concept

A downloadable app that servers as a parole officer rating tool:

data is publicly visible yet anonymously submitted. This crowdsourced community feedback would produce a more equitable relationship between officers and the people under their supervision by allowing those on parole to have transparency into the most critical relationship of their re-entry.

the solution

Safety through community:

This peer support app empowers those on parole to anonymously give and receive essential feedback about their assigned officer. Thus, giving people on parole an understanding of their parole officer through peer provided data.

Transparency means accountability:

The project protocol rating system can help ensure returning citizens receive support required for reintegration by identifying challenges within the system and highlighting best practices that allow for successful re-entry.

Founder's story

Emiliano was sentenced to life in prison in 2005.

During his sentence he observed that most non-English speakers within his Latin American community lacked resources to adequately advocate for re-entry. Emiliano translated court letters and provided legal research for Spanish speakers, helping fellow inmates to understand their rights. While incarcerated Emiliano received paralegal and civil litigation certificates.

Following his 2016 release, Emiliano was eager to start fresh and receive support services from his new parole officer. Instead, his relationship with parole hindered his success. Emiliano had his privacy invaded during unannounced officer visits, had his job security threatened by his officer’s no-notice demands that he leave work early, and struggled to advance his career through in-state professional events and conferences due to difficulties getting travel approval from his officer. 

Emiliano used social media to ask those within his formerly incarcerated network for thoughts on his new parole officer. His peers’ feedback was validating and enlightening; helping him to better navigate this critical relationship and advocate for himself. He learned that others struggled with his parole officer and several others, but couldn’t safely speak out for fear of retaliation. Thus, the idea for Project Protocol was born.
