Tell Gov. Whitmer to release people who are most vulnerable to COVID-19 from Michigan's prisons immediately.
People in prisons are highly vulnerable to outbreaks of contagious illnesses like COVID-19. They live in overcrowded close quarters with little control over their daily interactions with others, and are often in poor health or denied medical care.
We sent a letter to the Michigan Department of Corrections Director urging prison officials to protect the health of people in their custody, and their staff, and release people who are most vulnerable to the Coronavirus. Please help us send a message to Gov. Whitmer: Release vulnerable people from unsafe, overcrowded prisons in Michigan, and save lives now.
