In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we join with community organizations across the state in calling for the release of as many people as possible from Tennessee jails and prisons, especially the elderly and immunocompromised. We also call for the release of criminalized survivors who, as studies have shown, often have weakened immune systems as a result of trauma.
In addition, we have started a commissary fund for incarcerated survivors to help with hygiene supplies and other necessities. Please consider donating and helping us move resources inside.
Finally, we’re keeping a running list of COVID-19 resources for prisoners including self-care which can be accessed here.
