Join the movement for the abolition of modern day slavery!

The Human Rights Coalition is a long-standing community organization dedicated to defending the human rights of prisoners. We are holding our 2019 Kickoff event for our Campaign to Abolish Solitary!

Come hear directly from prisoners held in long-term isolation and from their families on the frontlines of fighting prison injustice! Together, we will break bread and strategize on how to build power this year and get our loved ones out of the "prison within a prison."

Long-term solitary confinement is a brutal form of torture used against political prisoners, mentally ill people, and anyone who challenges the system. In Pennsylvania, people are held in isolation for months, years and even decades! Working to abolish this barbaric practice is part of an abolitionist strategy to dismantle the structures of domination and control that uphold the whole system of mass incarceration.

Let our people go!
