Restricting the Use of Solitary Confinement in the United States
The National Prison Project of the American Civil Liberties Union Foundation will build on the early success of the model to restrict the use of long-term solitary confinement in U.S. prisons, jails, and juvenile facilities. NPP will continue to investigate prison systems that rely heavily on the practice, document its adverse health effects, and use advocacy and public education to restrict solitary confinement in target states, with the potential for national replication.
