Obama! There is No Time to Lose, Let’s End Solitary Confinement Once and For All

Amy Fettig

Most Americans have never seen what solitary confinement looks, feels, sounds, and smells like, but I’m a lawyer for the ACLU who represents thousands of men, women and children held in solitary confinement every day. I go to solitary to try to protect people’s rights and keep them from harm. But the truth is I can’t prevent the harm because solitary hurts people; crushes the human spirit; and forces many to suicide and self-mutilation.

What is it that separates us from the animals?

Perhaps it is mercy.

Thank you for your humanity, Amy. You bring them mercy.

God bless Amy Fettig.
