Convening to reduce use of Extreme Isolation in Prisons and Jails

John Jay College of Criminal Justice will hold a two-day meeting between corrections leaders - including state corrections directors and leading officials from major urban jails - experts, academics, and leaders in the advocacy community working for reform of prison and jail isolation practices. The goal is to plan next steps, forge greater connections and collaborations, to identify "lessons learned" from efforts to date, and formulate plans to ensure sustainability for a reform effort that still has much to accomplish.

American Civil Liberties Union Foundation

Restricting the Use of Solitary Confinement in the U.S.

The National Prison Project of the American Civil Liberties Union Foundation will investigate U.S. prison systems that rely heavily on the practice of solitary confinement, document its adverse health effects, and use advocacy (with corrections officials) and public education (media outreach and advocacy reports) based on findings to restrict its use in targeted states, with the potential for national replication. This work builds on a previous collaboration with the Foundation around the Stop Solitary campaign and decades of expertise improving correctional medical and mental health care for tens of thousands of prisoners around the country.





The Foundation's grant-making program is centered on the concepts of health and well-being. The Foundation's purpose is to promote and support effective and creative programs, practices and policies related to healing from illness, accident, physical, social or emotional trauma, and to extend the availability of programs that promote healing to underserved populations.
