People who are incarcerated are people. The close proximities and poor conditions in Hawai'i prisons and jails have left them in harm's way from COVID-19. There are options to avoid continuing the tragedy.
Please tell your officials to #FreeOurOhana.
We've provided a #FreeOurOhana Toolkit to help you demand the dramatic reduction of Hawaii's incarcerated population, limit new admissions into jails and prisons, take active steps to reduce the risk to any individuals who remain incarcerated, and make all plans regarding the management of COVID-19 in jails and prisons available to the public.
