    Human Rights Day Toolkit

    Human Rights Day is December 10th. We invite you and your congregation
    to join with NRCAT in marking Human Rights Day during worship services
    and through advocacy activities either the weekend of December 6-8,
    December 13-15, or another time of your choosing. Sign-up
    ( ) now to receive our Human
    Rights Day Toolkit, delivered to your inbox on October 25, to help
    your congregation mark Human Rights Day.

    This year, NRCAT's Human Rights Day focus is on Solitary Confinement
    in an Age of Mass Incarceration. We invite your congregation to focus
    on the human rights crisis faced by over 80,000 people being held in
    long-term solitary confinement in the U.S. Prisoners in solitary
    confinement are locked in a cement cell alone 23-24 hours a day, seven
    days a week, sometimes for months, years, even decades. The United
    Nations Special Rapporteur Against Torture, Juan Mendez, has stated
    that to keep an adult in solitary confinement for more than 15 days
    constitutes torture, and has called for a prohibition on the use of
    solitary confinement for youth and those with mental illness.
