Understanding and Replicating Washington State's Segregation Reduction Programs


This is a comprehensive research project to analyze the reduction in the use of segregation (“restricted housing”) over time throughout the Washington Department of Corrections (DOC). The research will focus on three key areas of analysis, critical to solitary reform, replication of this reform, and development of viable alternative systems: (1) analysis of technical, quantitative outcomes (e.g. rates of violence, recidivism, grievance filings) of segregation reduction in Washington State, which will provide evidence of system-wide benefits for states that seek to reduce reliance on segregation; (2) analysis of the culture among staff and senior administrators that facilitates systemic and sustainable change; (3) in-depth qualitative interviews with staff and prisoners in segregation, which will contribute to a critical mass of stories that humanize the individuals working in and experiencing solitary and can be leveraged in broader public conversations about why change is important and how it might be achieved.

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.

Everytown for Gun Safety
Data-driven Methods for Reducing Gun Violence in American Cities


Everytown for Gun Safety will produce a first-of-its-kind survey of interventions cities can take to reduce gun violence, the evidence of their impact, and case-studies thereof. A 1000-member coalition of mayors will be surveyed to determine the practices they have adopted, including their collection, acquisition, and analysis of crime gun trace data. Everytown will develop tools that can assist in operationalizing this data for purposes of law enforcement, policy analysis, and public education.
