Juvenile In Justice Images Used in Senate Hearing

Back in February the U.S. Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Human Rights, and Civil Rights held a hearing called “Reassessing Solitary Confinement II: the Human Rights, Fiscal, and Public Safety Consequences.” The room was packed with stakeholders and advocates (maybe you were there!), and powerful testimony was delivered on the floor.
