Solitary confinement is torture. It's been linked to lifelong physical and mental health problems, including anxiety, paranoia and depression.
For this special event survivors of solitary confinement will share their experiences in story-slam performances and conversation. Micropolis host Arun Venugopal will also be joined by members of the ACLU-NJ, the National Religious Campaign Against Torture and the NJ Coalition for Alternatives to assess where we are in this moment of criminal justice reform.
We’ll also have small group breakouts so you can have unfiltered conversations with the host, survivors and panelists, as well as your fellow New Yorkers.
And you’ll even have a chance to see what solitary confinement is like through virtual reality. Please click here to learn more and to purchase tickets.
