End solitary confinement in Illinois prisons
“After only a short time in solitary, I felt all of my senses begin to diminish. There was nothing to see but grey walls…..The lights were kept on for 24 hours. I often found myself wondering if an event I was recollecting had happened that morning or days before. I talked to myself.”

Several of 8th Day's Member Congregations joined the Catholic Sisters for a Healthy Earth in preparing a reflection booklet on the various rooms of a house, placing each room and its activities into the broader context of our Earth-home.

We begin this statement by saying that our vision is that all people would have access to health care. Health care is a necessity, not a privilege.
While universal health care coverage is not yet a reality, we realize that over 48 million Americans according to the 2011 U.S. Census are uninsured. We cannot allow this to continue. Those who are uninsured are most often people who are poor, working people with low-paying jobs, or the unemployed. If health care is needed, they must go to emergency rooms, which is very expensive. The cost is passed on in the form of increased premiums to all who do have health insurance.
