Keep ALC in the Fight to End Mass Incarceration!
Abolitionist Law Center, our clients, and our supporters have made important strides in overturning laws aimed at censoring and silencing prisoners’ voices, in challenging decades-long solitary confinement, and in pushing for life-saving treatment for hepatitis C+ prisoners. Over the last few years, lawsuits filed by Abolitionist Law Center have:
Ended solitary confinement of pregnant women at the Allegheny County Jail
Won the first court order in the country forcing prison officials to provide new hepatitis C medications
Won release from decades-long solitary confinement for Russell Maroon Shoatz and Arthur Cetewayo Johnson
Overturned a statute that would have silenced prisoners and anyone who published the speech of prisoners
