Join Senator Perkins For HALT Solitary Confinement Advocacy Day In Albany | April 22nd

Solitary Confinement:  Inconceivably, we have a human rights crisis here in New York State, as over 4,000 individuals—many of the most vulnerable and defenseless among us—are subject to state-sanctioned torture, in the form of solitary confinement.  This is an unacceptable situation and thus we continue the fight that Martin Sostre—a political prisoner and revolutionary born and raised in Harlem—commenced over forty five years ago when he first legally and successfully challenged the practice of solitary confinement as cruel and inhuman punishment.  In 2011, the United Nations Special Rapporteur agreed with this assessment, calling solitary confinement “torture”—plain and simple.

Now with an outright majority, Republicans continue to work with the IDC, no longer sharing co-leader roles.
