From Our Sacred Ground in Action (SGIA) ministry:
“For the second year in a row, the California State Assembly passed a bill to address prolonged solitary confinement. With concern for second veto from Governor Newsom, the initiative “will become a two year bill in order to facilitate good faith negotiations with the Governor and urge him to sign the act into law.”
Meanwhile, we can become effective advocates by joining The Episcopal Church and the National Religious Campaign Against Torture on Monday, October 30, 2:30 p.m. ET/11:30 a.m. PT, for Stop the Torture: Ending Solitary Confinement, an online presentation and discussion on ending prolonged solitary confinement. You will hear from survivors of torture in U.S. prisons and jails, and what they are doing to stop this practice, and you will learn how faith allies can engage in advocacy for the abolition of this practice. This multimedia presentation will leave you inspired to take action, with practical tools for advocacy in your community. Click here to register.
