Together to End Solitary Confinement at UUCSR - Tuesday, July 23, 6:30 p.m.
Together to End Solitary Confinement will be held on Tuesday, July 23 at 6:30 p.m. at the UU Congregation at Shelter Rock, 48 Shelter Rock Road, Manhasset in the Worship Room. Advocates for ending prolonged solitary confinement gather every month, remembering those who are in segregated confinement 23 hours a day. After a vigil in the worship room to remember those in solitary, we will go to the art gallery for a screening and discussion of 43 Years: Meet the Man Held in Solitary Confinement Longer than any Prisoner in U.S. History. Albert Woodfox is a former political prisoner who was held in solitary confinement for 43 years until he won his freedom just over three years ago. Hear him discuss his new memoir with Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzalez of Democracy Now. “Solitary confinement … is the most horrible and brutal nonphysical attack upon a human being,” Woodfox says.
