The Impact Fund announced that it has awarded a grant of $12,000 to PaILP to assist in the Williams v. Phila class action lawsuit. The case challenges conditions of confinement throughout the Philadelphia Prison System [PPS]. More specifically, it challenges the recent practice of triple celling in cells originally designed for one person and double bucked several years ago. The tripling is achieved by placing a temporary plastic boat/bed on the floor during night time hours.
