The time for reform is now

In June 2017, the Connecticut General Assembly unanimously passed HB 7302, “An Act Concerning Isolated Confinement and Correctional Staff Training and Wellness.” The law:

  • Requires annual reporting by the Department of Correction on the use of solitary

This legislation is a significant step towards justice...

...But additional reforms are urgently needed.
