Momentum is building around the issue of solitary confinement, and each year brings more dedicated advocates to the table. With the majority of people in solitary confinement held in state facilities, activists have organized in many states to demand state-level reforms to reduce the use of solitary confinement. Very few states, however, have statewide campaigns dedicated to keeping kids out of solitary confinement. The Children’s Law Center (CLC) kicked off its Stop Solitary for Ohio’s Youth campaign last April, and now joins anti-solitary confinement activists across the country to promote the campaign through actions and events on the 23rd of each month.
