NewsMatch is Back! Donations TRIPLED in November

by | November 10, 2023

Dear Donors, Readers, and Friends:

NewsMatch is back, and it’s more exciting than ever! This year:

Every dollar you give—up to $1,000—will be matched… and then matched again!

As a small-but-mighty organization, our time and resources are spent all year exposing the hidden torture taking place deep within prisons and jails throughout the United States.

We investigate. We uncover. We report. And we drive change.

For over a decade we’ve been both leaders and torchbearers for the movement to bring this unspeakable practice—isolating human beings in cells smaller than a parking space for months, years, even decades—into the light.

The work we do equips advocates, researchers, lawmakers, and even other journalists.

This month, as part of the annual NewsMatch campaign, we’ll be highlighting some of the work we’re proud to have done and our plans for the coming year, and maybe even make some news of our own.

This year NewsMatch will match your donation TWICE, making this the hardest working gift you can give.

If ever there was a time to support the work we dothis is it.

Thanks, as always, for reading, caring, and showing your support.

Help Expose the Hidden World of Solitary Confinement

Accurate information and authentic storytelling can serve as powerful antidotes to ignorance and injustice. We have helped generate public awareness, mainstream media attention, and informed policymaking on what was once an invisible domestic human rights crisis.

Only with your support can we continue this groundbreaking work, shining light into the darkest corners of the U.S. criminal punishment system.
