End Solitary Confinement
The Summit Interfaith Council Anti-Racism Committee believes that solitary confinement is an important racial justice issue.

Bills to end solitary confinement are pending in the New Jersey legislature. Come learn how you can get involved in the campaign to end this inhumane practice.
