“Use of Solitary Confinement in our state prison system – a parents perspective”

On November 22, the Adult forum will be hosting Tom and Jan Gilbert from Middleton, Wisconsin.  Their son was recently released after serving 5 years in Wisconsin’s prison system,  a portion of it in solitary confinement for violating prison rules after he was stripped cold turkey of his behavioral medications.  Some policy changes have been made recently by the Department of Corrections due to public concern, but the issue of the overuse of solitary confinement continues.  This session will be a significant opportunity to hear the story from the inside.  Join us at 9:15 am in the Lounge.

Rev. Mel Henrichs
