For years, the ACLU of Arizona has been counsel of record in Parsons v. Ryan, a class action lawsuit against Arizona Department of Corrections Director Charles Ryan. In this time, we have witnessed Ryan’s complete disregard for the health, safety, and lives of people in Arizona’s prisons. Rather than address the rampant human rights abuses repeatedly exposed throughout the course of litigation, Ryan, backed by Gov. Ducey, is spending millions of taxpayer dollars to fight court orders and deny the existence of inhumane conditions. It has been crystal clear for years that Ryan does not care about or want to address the suffering and avoidable deaths happening on his watch. Regardless, Gov. Ducey has stood firmly behind his prison director. Enough is enough. Email Gov. Ducey and tell him to hold his appointees accountable and immediately #FireChuckRyan!
