Solitary Confinement Forum
In 2012, Wisconsin placed more than 4,000 men in solitary confinement, well above the national average. A high percentage were mentally ill. 118 were isolated for over two years.
For one week, beginning May 24, FUS will host a full-size replica of a cell in the Segregation Unit of the Waupan Correctional Institution.
On May 26, Rev. Jerry Hancock will lead a Community Forum at FUS, including speakers with solitary cell experience. Rev. Hancock is the former head of law-enforcement services in the WI Department of Justice and current Director of the Prison Ministry Project.
