Take Action

Protect Incarcerated People from COVID-19

The health and safety of millions of people - including incarcerated individuals, correctional staff, and their families - depend on the federal government allocating resources across the country to reduce the spread of the virus and support initiatives to release vulnerable people from incarceration.

Overcrowded and unsanitary conditions, and an inability to control surroundings and distance from others, create heightened health risks for our friends and family in jails and prisons.

Urge your lawmakers to support legislation in the upcoming COVID-19 response package to limit the spread of infection and protect the lives of vulnerable people behind bars.
