National Conference Call
Social Workers Against Solitary Confinement
Social Workers Against Solitary Confinement, is a national coalition of social workers and concerned allies, who seek to abolish the torturous practice of solitary confinement in our nation's jails and prisons. Our efforts are focused on raising awareness about this practice, which we do through seminars, conferences, videos, articles and through our newsletter. We also actively support legislation that seeks humane alternatives to solitary confinement. In addition, we are particularly focused on engaging the health professions' around this issue, as health professionals are often unwitting participants in this inhumane practice
