SOLITARY NO MORE VA
& TORTURE FREE MD CAMPAIGNS
Both the Solitary No More VA and Torture Free MD Campaigns share one mission: to end the torturous practice of solitary confinement in Virginia’s prisons and jails.
Solitary No More VA and Torture Free MD Campaigns is sponsored by Interfaith Action for Human Rights (IAHR). IAHR represents people of faith and allies who educate and advocate in Maryland, DC, and Virginia for corrections systems to abolish unnecessarily punitive practices such as solitary confinement and to instead focus on rehabilitation and successful reentry of our citizens.
The campaigns in Virginia and Maryland consist of faith-based organizations, prison reform advocates, civil rights groups, and directly impacted individuals who are all working to end the torturous practice of solitary confinement.
Dedication. Expertise. Passion.
These campaigns are made up of volunteers and professionals from 30 other organizations, directly impacted individuals, and students from nearby universities. Members are dedicated, hard-working individuals who are passionate about ending the long-term use of Solitary Confinement in the U.S. Prison System.
