AFSC Oakland (formerly the San Francisco office) coordinates programs in migrant youth, economic activism, and healing justice. By bringing together staff, volunteers, and resources, we are a part of efforts across the Bay Area, state, nation, and globe. In the Oakland office, we are doing important research on the militarization of our police forces, prison system, and Israeli occupation; we operate a vibrant youth leadership program for at-risk, migrant youth; and continue advocacy to end solitary confinement, and mass incarceration. If you have any questions about our work, would like to become involved, or would like to financially support our efforts, we would love to be in touch!
Produced by filmmaker Matthew Gossage, the film examines the mental health, racial justice and human rights implications of the systemic use of solitary confinement in U.S. prisons.
