New on Solitary Watch: “Action” Page

Many readers of Solitary Watch have asked us to add to our site a list of things they can do to oppse the use and abuse of solitary confinement in U.S. prisons and jails.

The mission of Solitary Watch is primarily to shine a light into these domestic black sites and expose the practice of solitary confinement in order to spur public debate and reform. However, there are many other groups involved in directly organizing against solitary confinement, and more and more related events and actions across the country.

Our stellar intern Sal Rodriguez has now created an “Action” page for the site to collect information on organizations and events. Please click on the tab above to check out this work-in-progress. And to suggest an item for the Action page, please email it to
