Solidarity with the Incarcerated from North Carolina to Guantanamo
June 26 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Per capita, more people are incarcerated in the U.S. than in any other country on earth and North Carolina is one of 12 states in which more than half the prison population is Black. Our state hosts a CIA aviation firm used in the kidnapping and torture of at least 49 Black and Brown people, all Muslim, in the so-called “war on terror.” Join us on June 26, UN International Day in Support of Victims of Torture, for a gathering to hear speakers, bear witness, connect with others who care, and write letters to Governor Cooper. Participants will briefly “experience” solitary confinement through virtual reality headsets, watch a short documentary on solitary confinement, and hear at least one person who has experienced it.
