WHAT YOU CAN DO

ADVANCE THE CONVERSATION

Let’s give them something to talk about!  Starting the national conversation about the abuses of solitary confinement is a core part of our mission.  It takes the will of the people to enact meaningful change.  You can do your part by encouraging civil conversation around the topic.

SUPPORT LEGISLATION

Passing legislation that brings the United States into compliance with the Mandela Rules is the ultimate goal.  The work begins and ends with the law, so advocating for and supporting legislation is crucial.  But everyone can help, not just policy makers and attorneys.
