#COVID19Children of Incarcerated Parents Demand URGENT Action to #ProtectOurParents Behind Bars

An Open Letter to the Federal Bureau of Prisons, Governors, State Departments of Corrections and Public Safety, Local Jails, Detention Centers, City Officials, Telecommunications Companies and the Media

WE GOT US NOW  4 URGENT DEMANDS:

  1. IMMEDIATE CLEMENCY
  2. FREE COMMUNICATIONS
  3. NOTIFICATON SYSTEM
  4. SAFE + SANITARY MEASURES/CONDITIONS 

#WEGOTUSNOW ~ As directly impacted daughters and sons, who work daily to address the issues children of incarcerated parents face, we are anxious, fearful and quite frankly, extremely daunted by thoughts that our parents in jails, state prisons and federal correctional facilities across the United States are potentially the most vulnerable group to the COVID-19 virus. There are 2.3 million people incarcerated in the United States of America. 50% of the incarcerated population are our parents. 10 million children in the US have been impacted by parental incarceration at some point in their lives. With information changing hourly on the spread of this pandemic virus, and social distancing not being a reality inside the prison industrial complex, we believe it is necessary for immediate actions to take place to curtail the impact of the virus on all families, including those most affected by mass incarceration.  JOIN OUR MOVEMENT:  www.WEGOTUSNOW.org 

THANK YOU FOR SIGNING OUR PETITION!
