Long-term solitary confinement is inhumane.
It creates severe mental and physical trauma that can cause irreparable harm. When it’s used for prolonged periods of time, solitary is nothing short of torture, and its effects can be deadly.
TAKE ACTION: Tell state lawmakers and Gov. Cuomo to put strict limits on the use of solitary and promote rehabilitative alternatives.
