About Us

REEP Now’s vision is a world with a fair chance of life after prison. Currently, in Louisiana, those currently incarcerated are afforded no assistance in the parole process. In California, on the other hand, parole representation is a right. In Louisiana, the lack of counsel through the parole process results in unfair outcomes for those caught in the system of incarceration. At REEP Now we believe in the right to representation for parole hearings and this is why we have organized to provide parole support, advocacy and representation for those unable to access such services. 

Why?

What we do.

About us

REEP Now is founded on the belief that all of those incarcerated and eligible for parole should have support and representation. REEP Now is designed to offer parole representation and support to those who are unable to obtain it. At REEP Now we work to provide parole representation and support to as many eligible prisoners as possible. REEP Now works directly with those currently incarcerated and their families by providing support and guidance from the very beginning stages of the parole process. REEP Now is configured to provide support, resources and direct representation for parole hearings. The volunteers are the underbelly of REEP Now. Volunteer lawyers and law students donate their time and energy for free. At REEP Now we are so compelled by the incarceration crisis and steadfast in our belief that parole representation should be granted as a right that we do not believe in collecting a fee for our assistance and representation.
