Date & Time November 16, 2015 6:30pm
Barnum Hall Rm. 008
Amnesty International

Tufts Amnesty International, Carter/Artis Innocence International at Tufts and the Institute for Global Leadership present Voices from Solitary Think Outside the Box featuring John Artis, Innocence International; Five Omar Mualimm-ak, The Incarcerated Nation Corp; Jason Lydon, Black and Pink…and more!

The aim of the panel is to present a discussion of the different facets and experiences of solitary and to look at opportunities for building a network and community to fight the use of solitary in Massachusetts, in the United States, and abroad. Of course, solitary confinement is just one symptom of a corrupt, abusive system. We hope to draw a line between the isolation and oppression of solitary confinement and the potential for liberation and community within anti-solitary, anti-mass incarceration, anti-oppression, etc. activism.

This event is presented with co-sponsorship from Tufts Amnesty International and the Institute for Global Leadership in partnership withTufts Peace and Justice Studies and Tufts American Civil Liberties Union Student Chapter.
