This Sunday’s Service – Once We Know, We Can’t Turn Away: The Truth About Solitary Confinement

Bernadette Orr

I recently had the privilege of leading a retreat for a group of activists and organizers working to end the practice of solitary confinement. What I learned shocked and saddened me deeply. I was also profoundly moved to meet people who have dedicated their lives to ending this practice which amounts to nothing less than torture in our prisons. As we confront the impacts of locking people away without any other human contact, we open our eyes and hearts to the humanity we share with all individuals, including those in prison.
