People who are incarcerated in New Jersey prisons have died from COVID-19 at a higher rate than any other prison system in the country – in a state with the worst Black-white disparity in prison population.
Urgent action is needed to save lives. Send a message to New Jersey elected officials to urge the swift passage of legislation (S2519/A4235) to create an emergency credit system for incarcerated people in our prisons, jails, and juvenile facilities. Without immediate action, more people will die – both inside and outside of prison walls.
