California Coalition for Women Prisoners seeks testimony and information about women & trans prisoners and solitary confinemen

California Coalition for Women Prisoners is planning the next issue of our Fire Inside newsletter on solitary confinement and its specific impact on women and trans prisoners. There is increased national attention about the widespread, cruel and unusual use of prolonged solitary confinement in US prisons and Guantanamo, mainly due to the hunger strikes that prisoners have been undertaking to make this visible.

We are receiving many questions about the specific conditions that women and trans prisoners face is SHU, Ad Seg and Control Management units and other types of solitary.

We would appreciate information about this important subject from people in California and around the country.

You can send the information to or mail to CCWP, 1540 Market St., #490, SF, CA 94102.
