In Spring 2015, we partnered with ACLU Action to petition the Attorney General to end solitary for youth. Every day across the country, young people (as young as 13) are held in solitary confinement with almost no human contact for days or months at a time.
It's not too late to sign our petition: aclu.org/bansolitary4youth

Week of Action
On April 6-10, university students from around the country mobilized in support of the ACLU petition, organizing panels, demonstrations, signature collections, and events protesting juvenile solitary. Over a dozen events were organized at schools including Harvard, Yale, University of North Carolina, UW-Madison, and Ohio State. #endyouthsolitary
