In observing the 75th anniversary of Human Rights Day, the Viatorian Community joins with the National Religious Campaign Against Torture, by highlighting a film from its new short film series, called Humans Out of Solitary. Each four-minute film features interviews with 30 solitary survivors.
In this first film, Ms. Natasha White powerfully describes how her time in solitary confinement while incarcerated was designed to break her spirit. And yet, it did not stop her from going on to now lead efforts to fight for new human rights standards proposed by the Virginia state legislature that would end solitary confinement in the state. Ms. White currently serves as the Coordinator of the Virginia Coalition on Solitary Confinement and the Director of Community Engagement at Interfaith Action for Human Rights.
