On this first day of summer, it occurs to us that we’ve never posted our spring newsletter, which went out to 500+ people in solitary more than a month ago. This quarter’s print edition includes articles on children in solitary and on closing Tamms supermax prison, along with news briefs from around the country. It also includes a moving essay by a man held in solitary in ADX Florence, the federal supermax, titled “Loneliness Is a Destroyer of Humanity.”
The print edition is sent free of charge, thanks to the generosity of our donors, to currently and formerly incarcerated individuals and their families and supporters and to nonprofit organizations. To request that you or someone you know be added to the mailing list, send the address to Solitary Watch, PO Box 11374, Washington, DC 20008.
