Born from the first July 2011 hunger strike initiated in the Pelican Bay SHU, a movement of family members came together in September 2011 to support efforts to end solitary confinement in California’s prisons. California Families Agaisnt Solitary Confinement (CFASC) is dedicated to stopping the inhumane treatment of prisoners within the California Penal System, especially those held in solitary confinement. Our ultimate goal is to end the use of solitary confinement; our short-term goals are to reduce its use and to insist on due process and fairness. We support the five core demands put forth by the Pelican Bay Hunger Strikers.
