As New York State continues to confront the worst public health crisis in the last century, Governor Andrew Cuomo and state officials have failed to develop a comprehensive plan to tackle the crisis of the novel coronavirus in jails and prisons across the state. As a result, COVID-19 continues to spread like wildfire in jails and prisons in New York—and deaths of incarcerated people continue to rise.
Take action with us on Twitter on Wednesday, February 3rd from 12 noon to 1 pm to tell Governor Andrew Cuomo and New York State's Legislative Leaders to:
- Include incarcerated people in NY's COVID-19 vaccination plan.
- Ensure people in prison have access to PPE & COVID-19 testing.
- Release people in prison to stop the spread of COVID-19.
