Solitary Confinement as Torture in U.S. Prisons (Week Against Mass Incarceration)
Tuesday, March 5, 2019 @ 12:45 pm - 2:00 pm
Solitary confinement is routinely used to further confine and punish those in prison, despite that the U.N. has found extended periods of solitary to constitute torture. A panel of survivors and experts will explore the legal implications and human cost of this practice. Lunch will be served.
