A year ago on July 8th, over 30,000 people on the inside began a hunger strike to bring an end to California’s use of indefinite solitary confinement.
This was the largest hunger strike in U.S. history, and dozens of incarcerated people carried on the fast for 60 days. Join us as we honor these courageous people and push forward to bring an end to the torture of long-term solitary confinement.
