From The Sentencing Project:
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. 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.
Join The Sentencing Project and our allies working to influence Congress and the administration for an important advocacy conversation as Congress prepares its fourth legislative response to the COVID-19 emergency so we can ensure the lives of incarcerated people are protected.
Speakers for The Sentencing Project webinar include Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.), Kara Gotsch of The Sentencing Project, Ahmadou Drame of the Safer Foundation, Patricia Richman of Federal Public and Community Defenders, and Sakira Cook of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights.
