Amy Fettig serves as Senior Staff Counsel for the ACLU’s National Prison Project (NPP) where she litigates federal class action prison conditions cases under the Eighth Amendment. Her practice focuses on claims regarding medical and mental health care in prison, solitary confinement, prison rape, and comprehensive reform in juvenile facilities. She also directs the ACLU’s Stop Solitary campaign seeking to end the practice of long-term isolation in our nation’s prisons, jails and juvenile detention centers through public policy reform, legislation, litigation and public education.
I am so excited to support Solitary Watch and Sarah Shourd in this important new effort to shine a light on the lives and voices of men, women and children held in solitary confinement around the country. Solitary confinement in our prisons, jails, juvenile and immigration detention centers raises serious human rights concerns that must be immediately addressed nationwide. "Opening the Box" will help the American people understand the human rights violations taking place in their own communtiies. And through understanding comes action and the opportunity to change. Please join me in supporting this critical piece in the national effort to stop solitary.
