Correctional Association Joins Campaign to Challenge Solitary Confinement

Print Friendly

The Correctional Association joined with dozens of organizations to  launch the New York Campaign for Alternatives to Isolated Confinement (CAIC).

CAIC is a state-wide campaign of organizations, formerly incarcerated people, family members of people in prison, and concerned community members challenging the torturous abuse of solitary confinement.

CAIC believes we need legislative action to dismantle the current system of solitary in New York prisons and jails, and engages in public education and community outreach to organize support for that end.

As a long-time leader on the issue of solitary confinement in New York, the Correctional Association is excited to help launch CAIC and continue to build a movement for change.

We  urge you to join us in this important campaign.
