American Friends Service Committee - Torture in US Prisons

Date: Sun, 28 Mar 2010

To Whom it May Concern:

The American Friends Service Committee Prison Watch Project is planning to update
the Fall 2001 "Torture in US Prisons – Evidence of US Human Rights Violations." We
are seeking testimonies from men, women and children relating to the use of extended
isolation and devices of torture (use of force, chemical and physical restraints,
other living conditions, forced double celling in isolation, etc.). We will also be
accepting drawings and photos. Our deadline is June 15th. We will only be able to
acknowledge by form letter. Unless otherwise authorized the publication will use
first name, last initial and facility only. Please send to Bonnie Kerness, AFSC, 89
Market St., 6th floor, Newark, NJ 07102. Please make this message available to
people concerned with the prison system and send it to friends and loved ones in
prison. Without your input, this publication would not be possible. Our gratitude.
