Join us Sunday June 24th at Project Pollinate’s Summer Solstice Celebration!

June is Torture Awareness Month. End Solitary Confinement and Sleep Deprivation Torture.

Take and help distribute free literature, do outreach to passersby, sign up yourself and others on our email list, sign petitions, brainstorm how to get involved in the movement to end solitary confinement, the Prison Industrial Complex, the Treatment Industrial Complex and the widening net of state control within our communities, and the legal slavery of convicted and incarcerated people.

End the incarceration and criminalization of people of color, the poor, and immigrants.

Take action to support incarcerated and formerly incarcerated people and family members and loved ones.

We are in the street on the 24th of every month. People are locked up in solitary confinement without meaningful contact 24 hours a day.

The UN Mandela Rules prohibit solitary confinement over 15 consecutive days and any solitary confinement of vulnerable populations such as youth, people with mental health issues, and pregnant and breastfeeding women.

Yet California and the U.S. lock people up in solitary for months, years, and decades.

California is the outlier in the United States, and the United States holds more people in solitary than any other governmental body in the world. There are up to 100,000 people in solitary in U.S. prisons, plus untold numbers in jails, juvenile facilities, and detention centers.

End solitary confinement torture! End the carceral state.

Join us Sunday June 24 and the 24th of every month.
