In 2008, AFSC organized a conference in Philadelphia on maximum security prisons – Stop Max Conference. Up until that time, the AFSC PA program had been focusing mainly on U.S. sponsored torture. The conference was influential in opening up the work to include the use of prolonged isolation in our prisons as torture. Scilla will talk about the recognition by national as well as local groups that torture is being practiced in our prisons as well as by our Government.  

On February 21, 2013 Erin Polley, AFSC's program coordinator of the Indiana Peacebuilding Program and the If I Had a Trillion Dollars (IHTD) Youth film festival discussed the history of the IHTD and why this was an important moment to discuss budget priorities.
