CAIC 2017 Advocacy Day in Albany

Come with us to Albany on May 2nd to speak to your legislators about the inhumane and counterproductive use of solitary confinement and the need to pass the HALT Act.

On any given day, roughly 5,000 people are in isolated confinement in NYS prisons.

Most people sent to isolation in New York State prisons spend months or years there; some individuals have been in solitary confinement for more than two decades.

The HALT (Humane Alternatives to Long-Term) Solitary Confinement Act would END long-term solitary confinement beyond 15 days in New York and replace it with more humane and effective alternatives.
