Reviving the Fight Against Solitary Confinement

It's going to be a momentous week: On Tue, March 19, we'll hold an event to reignite the struggle to end long-term solitary confinement in California.

The Louis B. Mayer Lounge at UC Hastings, at the ground floor of 198 McAllister Street, will host a life-size model of a SHU cell. Everyone is invited to come and take a tour of the SHU throughout the day. And when you do, think of what it's like to live in a cell like that... not for a five-minute tour, but for years, 22.5 hours a day.

And at 6pm, we'll be holding a panel featuring people who have done time at the SHU, activists, lawyers, and family members. 

The event is free and open to the public. More information on the event's Facebook page.

And of course, two days later, on Thu, March 21, we'll hold our big conference, California Correctional Crisis: Realignment and Reform. Please register, come, and bring friends.
