Cages are disabling and traumatizing environments. As a result, prisoners suffer from low morale. They also suffer from a variety of human rights abuses committed by jail and prison officials such as torture and “extremely-poor-quality health care.” These forms of violence are state-sanctioned. Therefore, we can’t expect meaningful oversight of Ohio’s concentration camps to come from the state.

Please bring a friend and join us in Meeting Room 3 for Black History Month. A film screening of Herman’s House will precede our fifth letter writing event. This film is about a member of the Black Panther Party who had spent 41 years in solitary confinement. After the film, we will send birthday cards to Lesleye and Iyshia. Both were sentenced to life in prison.
