I pulled this information off the JDCJ web page. There is a lot of info on the units and covid. These are the numbers of prisoners that have died in local hosptials between April 7th and June 19 in Texas, for a total of 79 deaths. (The total goes up when we add in those prisoners that died at the units)
In total there have been 115,711 offenders and 34,935 employees tested for COVID-19. Of those tested, 7,821 offenders and 1,321 staff have tested positive for COVID-19 in both symptomatic and asymptomatic testing. There have been 6,780 offenders and 915 employees who have recovered. There have been 79 offender deaths connected to COVID 19 with an additional 27 under investigation. There have been 8 employee line of duty deaths from COVID-19.
These numbers are not defined in the on going news coverage of Covid-19, but should be noted as they are not in our communities and are added to the totals for our communities.

Email My name is______ and I am a (resident, family member of an inmate, concerned member of society). I am contacting you to advocate for bill AB236 to apply retroactively. The goal of AB236 was to remedy what legislators have already acknowledged as extreme sentencing, reduce the prison population and reduce costs for taxpayers and the State. During this time, AB236 would also provide inmates a safer alternative to the risk of contracting COVID. This is important to me because, (). From the data analysis of the prison system as a result of the Justice Reinvestment Initiative, it was found that of the prison population: 79% are there for non-violent crimes, 52% have mental health needs 55% are first time felony offenders and 66% of those in prison committed non-person offenses. These statistics not only display the trend that needs to be prevented in order to reduce the incarceration rate, but also reveals who is currently suffering from Nevada’s harsh sentencing laws and lack of resources. How can we acknowledge the current impact yet exclusively push for reform addressing only the future impact? Reform includes those in prison now. We as a public demand that this legislature re-define AB236 as retroactive.

URGENT: There will be a special legislative session on July 8th in Nevada to discuss the new implications COVID has had on this upcoming fiscal year. This session will also discuss criminal justice reform and it is up to us to place public pressure on this judiciary to address bill AB236 and police reform. AB236 is a piece of legislation that recategorizes many property and drug crimes, as the previous categories and implied sentences were too broad and extreme.This bill is not retroactive, despite this judiciary finding the following to be true of the those imprisoned in Nevada: 79% are there for non-violent crimes, 52% have mental health needs 55% are first time felony offenders and 66% of those in prison committed non-person offenses. Please use the scripts below to email, tweet or call the contacts listed and demand for this bill to be retroactive and for better police reform legislation. Your support means everything.
Dear United Voices for Prison and Parole Reform: My grandson is a California state prisoner named Eric Knapp. A friend of mine believes you might care to read, sign, share, and help get at least one other person to also read, sign, and share our online petition titled "Clemency or Parole for Eric Knapp," at https://www.thepetitionsite.com/709/965/499/clemency-or-parole-for-eric-knapp/. We are trying to get at least 1,000 people to sign our petition within the next 60-90 days, particularly because the California Board of Parole Hearings just recently scheduled Eric to attend a Youthful Offender Parole Hearing on March 5, 2020! We therefore hope to present our petition to the BPH with at least 1,000 supporters' names by no later than February 15, 2020. (We currently have over 575 signatures.) Eric is a first-term offender who had no prior criminal record at the time of his arrest in November 1992. In short, Eric is serving a 98-year sentence for non-homicide conduct that occurred not only when he was less than 26 years old (which makes him a youthful offender under California Penal Code section 3051) but also while he was temporarily suffering a severely deteriorated mental state as a result of his active service in the military at the time (which California Penal Code section 1170.91 says is a mitigating factor that warrants less severe sentencing). Specifically, Eric was accused and convicted of sexually assaulting two different adult women once each on separate and unrelated occasions. However, both women testified at trial that Eric did not physically injure or harm them in any way during their encounters with him, and the first of the two women even came forward in the year 2002 and confessed (both in writing and in court) that she had lied altogether about what allegedly happened during her encounter with Eric. Throughout the trial court proceedings, Eric's defense counsel, the prosecution, and the trial court each committed multiple wrongful acts, omissions, and errors that, taken together, substantially prejudiced Eric, were not harmless beyond a reasonable doubt, denied Eric due process of law, equal protection of the law, a fair hearing in a fair tribunal, and other rights secured for all criminal defendants by the Constitution and laws of the United States and the State of California, and resulted in a gross miscarriage of justice as defined by clearly established state and federal law. We, Eric's family members and friends, have 27 very specific reasons that we believe Eric's 98-year sentence is cruel, unusual, excessive, disparate, and otherwise wrongful and unjust. (See, at https://www.facebook.com/groups/517566742350150/permalink/520837822023042.) Anyone may visit our site and see for themselves all the facts and evidence which we believe clearly show the many injustices that surround Eric's conviction, sentence, and continuous incarceration since November 1992. Will you please at least read our petition and maybe go see what's posted at the above Facebook location before finally deciding whether or not to help us? Many people are hoping and praying our petition will help bring Eric home to usafter these past 27 years he's been in prison. Thank you.💕👥

Hey Everyone! Hope all is well with you. I'm writing because I wanted to share with you a very important project I’m working on, it's a web series called Awol. The show will be following the lives of students and teachers at non-public schools, non-public schools are institutions that take care of children with disabilities and youth dealing with behavioral issues. Our goal is to interrupt the school to prison pipeline by creating awareness about the reality of the educational system. We launched a crowdfunding campaign and I hope you'll support us by making a contribution and sharing the link www.awoltheseries.com Thank you so much.
