Releases during COVID-19 brought the CA prison population below 100,000 for the first time in 30 years. Nearly 6,000 were released by the end of July, with thousands more to be considered for early release in August.
Incarceration is a public health emergency. People have poor living conditions with little access to hygiene. Even before COVID, overcrowding in CA prisons caused enough suffering to be ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court.
We can’t wait to reimagine public safety. We need #CareNotCages #DefundThePolice #FreeThemAll #BlackLivesMatter
It’s time we:
👉🏽Prioritize decarceration
👉🏽Properly fund re-entry services
👉🏽End cash bail
👉🏽Provide those who are incarcerated with proper health care
👉🏽Support families with incarcerated loved ones
