Our May 4 vigil is co-sponsored by the Prison Watch, Healing Justice and Immigrant Rights Programs of the American Friends Service Committee. We will be focusing on the issues of solitary confinement and surveillance, and the historical connections to be drawn between their current and prior use. We seek to place the abuses we highlight on a monthly basis in the larger historical context, recognizing that many of them are abuses identified and experienced by others in the past.
What: No Separate Justice Coalition May Vigil: Solitary Confinement and Surveillance
Where: Metropolitan Correction Center (see directions below)

Please join us on May 4th as we continue to build a growing voice of people of conscience and shine a light together to expose the human rights abuses happening across our country in these cases. We have plenty of signs to share.
Directions to Vigil: The closest subway to MCC is the 4,5, or 6 train to Brooklyn Bridge - walk up Centre Street to Foley Square and look for Pearl Street which is in between the two huge federal courthouses on Foley Square. Walk down Pearl Street one block to where it dead ends on Park Row - the vigil takes place there on the corner across from the entrance to MCC.
