The Isolation Project:
Across the U.S, children spend days and months in solitary confinement.The ACLU found that in 2011 more than 95,000 children spent time in solitary confinement.
In a subsequent report, the ACLU writes, “This bare social and physical existence makes many young people feel doomed and abandoned, or in some cases, suicidal, and can lead to serious physical and emotional consequences.”
This May, Richard Ross, Executive Director of J-in-J, spent 24 hours in isolation in a juvenile detention facility in the midwest.
