The Struggle for Prisoners’ Rights

The hunger strikes by prisoners in the Pelican Bay SHU and elsewhere have highlighted the human rights nightmare inside America’s prisons. Urszula Wislanka, supporter of the Pelican Bay Hunger Strike, will speak on the prisoner's fight to hold onto their humanity in the midst of the most inhuman environment yet designed. Glenn Turner, a Spiritual Advisor to California prisoners, will add her perspective on how prisoners respond to the abusive treatment inside.
