Stop Undermining Texans' Safety
Tell Governor Abbott to rescind his recent Executive Order
Governor Greg Abbott's recent executive order blocks the release of certain people who can’t afford to pay cash bail, while allowing for wealthier people to still buy their way out. It should go without saying that the size of someone's bank account shouldn't determine whether they live or die in jail during this pandemic, so we sued.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread across Texas and the nation, Governor Abbott must take immediate action to prevent a potential outbreak in Texas prisons and jails, where close quarters make social distancing impossible. There have already been reports of individuals contracting the COVID-19 coronavirus, who come in regular contact with Texas' carceral facilities.
While we take this fight to the courts, send Governor Abbott a message and urge him to follow the advice of public health officials to keep all Texans safe.
