New Vision Organization (NVO) is a non-profit organization consisting of volunteers who advocate for incarcerated men, women and youth. NVO assists prisoners with supportive legal, educational, and re-entry services. Its mission includes ensuring that prisoners are treated fairly and receive medical and rehabilitative services necessary to heal and become productive citizens upon re-entering their communities. NVO also advocates for pro bono legal assistance and helps prisoners and families research the status of inmates' court cases.

NVO's president and founder is Leonna Brandao. As a social worker, she spent many years working with families, children and adolescents before she found herself in the position with families who experience the overwhelming loss of having a loved one imprisoned with little to no hope for release. NVO volunteers include lawyers, paralegals, social workers, letter writers, and others who promote prisoners' human rights and release for the innocent. Please contact her at the email address and website above to become an NVO volunteer and/or appear as a guest on this radio broadcast.
