ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN

End Solitary is decARcerate campaign seeking to end Arkansas' practice
of 
extreme isolation, replacing it with program-rich evidence-based alternatives.

HALT GROWTH

The Arkansas Department
of Correction recently added 400

additional solitary confinement cells, meaning that at any given time, up to 16% of Arkansas' prison population could be housed in isolation.
 

Help us stop further expansion.

STOP USAGE

Solitary confinement has repeatedly been called "torture" and "a violation of human rights" by the United Nations. 

Together we can replace this abusive practice with proven alternatives. 

Help us stop the practice.

ALTERNATIVES

All across the country,
states are turning away from
solitary confinement
. Together we can insist that prisons become
program-rich communities which support safe, healthy rehabilitation and reintegration into society.

Help us demand alternatives.

ABOUT SOLITARY

Solitary confinement is the process
by which individuals are kept isolated for 23-24 hours
a day in a 6 by 9 foot cell with limited human interaction
and little constructive activity.

ALTERNATIVES

Alternatives to isolation are less expensive,
far more effective than our current practices,
and significantly more humane
and reasonable than solitary confinement.
