Lifelines to Solitary is a prison correspondence program specifically designed to reach out to people in solitary confinement. On any given day more than 100,000 people are held in solitary confinement in U.S. prisons and jails.
Letters have the potential to transform the lives of people in solitary. A group of us each committed to write at least a monthly letter to an individual held in isolation. And as we bear witness to their suffering and their resilience, our faith community may also be transformed.
