NDPF Survey For Sample Demand Letters
This survey will be used to inform series of trainings where advocates will assess what we know about Non-Designated Program Facilities (NDPF), what harm they have caused, what needs to change, and what efforts have and might be successful for changing them. This survey will be used to gather examples to use in sample legal demand letters, sample 602s, and sample declarations to be discussed at the training that participants can modify for their own use in documents they may prepare.
This survey's purpose is to gather evidence about the consequences of NDPF, so it's helpful if you'll let us know about an incident that you think is indirectly or directly caused by NDPF

Only the first three questions are mandatory, but please share with us answers to as many other questions as you feel comfortable. Feel free to answer in the form of a declaration that advocates can send directly to officials. If there are multiple incidents you want to report, just report them each in one section but make clear the different dates and times.

Please email completed 115s, 128s, 1824s, 22s, 602s, letters to CDCR, petitions, declarations, survey responses, custody documents, medical documents, pictures, etc. to ckh@caitlinkellyhenry.com in advance of the training.
