COVID-19 has quickly spread in many of the nation’s jails and prisons. Policymakers, correctional staff, and public health service providers can play an important role in responding to the prevention and urgent service needs of people impacted by incarceration who are particularly vulnerable, directly and indirectly, to the effects of coronavirus of COVID-19.
Data shows that COVID-19 is affecting Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and other people of color the most.

We cannot sit idly by as acts of racism, hatred, violence, and murder are repeatedly targeted toward black and brown people. Silence is not an option, and expressions of outrage and dismay are not enough.
