Savannah Eldrige is the founder of Be Frank, Inc., which supports practices that improve indigent defense in appointed counsel systems, advocates for sentence reform, and promotes the legal empowerment of litigants and families. Be Frank, Inc., was formed in veneration of Savannah’s brother Frank. In her effort to aid him through his own appeal process, Savannah recognized that barriers such as lack of procedural knowledge and limited access to legal reference materials can inhibit a defendant’s ability to meet procedural requirements. Since then, she has been committed to lobbying for transparency in judicial practices and creating clearer pathways for post-conviction relief. Savannah is an active member of the Texas Prisons Air Conditioning Advocates, National Council of Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated Women and Girls, Families Against Mandatory Minimums, and the Women’s Legislative Team, which was formed during Texas’ 2019 legislative session to champion the dignity and rights of incarcerated women. She is a mother of three, has enjoyed a professional career as a nurse for 20 years, and resides in Corpus Christi, Texas.
