Rally to end isolation in jails and prisons to be held in Albany

Posted:
ALBANY N.Y. – A rally to put an end to isolation in New York jails and prisons will be held at the Capitol.

A group of more than 100 people, including members of the state senate and assembly, are heading to Albany on Monday in support of the Halt Solitary Confinement Act. 

The bill was introduced in January and aims to eliminate solitary confinement, which come say can be dangerous and tortuous to inmates. 

More than 5,000 inmates are being held in solitary confinement in prisons and jails.
