Left-Right: Chris, Saleem, and Wesley

#SolidarityNotSolitary Harrisburg! On June 26th HRC spent the day in Harrisburg at the State Capital with Chris Kimmenez from Healing Communities and Wesley from the Human Rights Coalition (HRC) meeting with legislators to discuss legislation that would end long term solitary confinement. Afterwards we headed out to a joint CADBI, HRC, Healing Communities, and PA Council of Churches forum on ending long term Solitary Confinement and Death by Incarceration. For us the connection between DBI and Solitary is obvious, both practices treat human beings as disposable and beyond redemption. Both practices must be ended. Thanks to Saleem Holbrook, Andy Switzer, Kempis Songster, Carrington Keys, Shandre Delaney, Sunshine Griggs, Dana Lomax-Williams, John Rowland, Jose Alamo and everyone that turned out for making the forum a success. We will be having several more forums across the state in the upcoming months building a powerful coalition lead by impacted families, formerly incarcerated and allies.
