Writing letters to persons in solitary confinement is a concrete way for decARcerate to support individuals subjected to this horrific practice. Letters help to create human interaction and communication; something that solitary confinement is designed to suppress.
This is not merely an act of charity. Writing letters allows us to keep prisoners connected to the decARcerate movement, allowing them to provide their own insights and stay up to date on our work. We believe this communication has the potential to improve the lives not only of the individuals in solitary confinement, but also of those on the outside who bear witness to their suffering.
