On June 23, 13 prisoners at SCI Phoenix began hunger striking to protest the conditions of the Intensive Management Unit – another form of solitary confinement. The IMU has no handbook, no policy, and no step-down pathway out of solitary @DOCSecretary

Incarcerated community members who've been in #solitaryconfinement for months + years on end were transferred to #SCIPhoenix and promised a new program by the #PADOC that would provide education + mental health resources – and way back to general population. That was a lie...

JOHN BRAMBLE, #Vaughn17 tells us how it really is at #SCIPhoenix: “We currently only shower 3x/week, no mental health treatment whatsoever, and only 5 hrs of recreation/week...we have absolutely no structure to our day at all. Everything is up in the air." #SCIPhoenixHungerStrike

DWAYNE STAATS of the #Vaughn17 shares out on why he is hunger striking, reminding us "the #prisonindustrialcomplex only perpetuates the evolution of #slavery. Our resistance to their abuse of power has always been predicated on preserving our dignity." @freevaughn17 @phlbailfund
