We're still seeing the numbers of COVID-19 cases increase in jails, prisons and detention centers, among the most vulnerable populations. Stopping this can't wait on the inauguration of a new president. We are raising this as a public health, environmental justice and prisoner solidarity effort. We are applying pressure on government agencies that have the power to push for reducing the amount of incarcerated people as a necessary way to address this pandemic's impact behind bars, along with other measures to improve health and safety.
Here's what we're asking:
1. Endorse the campaign (we'll add your org to the list on the "about" page)
2. Share social media
3. Ask friends and family to sign the petition
Stay tuned for updates and plans for future demonstrations.
