A Blueprint for Ending Solitary Confinement by the Federal Government
The Federal Anti-Solitary Taskforce (FAST) released the first-ever Blueprint for Ending Solitary Confinement by the federal government. This document outlines how the United States government can use executive, administrative, and legislative action to end the torture of solitary confinement in federal custody, including in Bureau of Prisons facilities, U.S. Marshals Service facilities, and immigration detention. President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris both committed to ending the practice of solitary confinement in their 2020 campaigns and policy platforms.
