#FreeThemAll - No Prison Pandemic!

The United States is grossly obsessed with incarceration. Whether called “detention center,” “facility,” “jail,” or “prison,” these systems share the same unjust design: to incarcerate black, brown and working class people and strip them of their dignity. Support this urgent call to save the lives of thousands locked up in our county and city jails, state and federal prisons, and in immigration detention. We must end mass incarceration. This is literally a matter of life and death!

 

IMMIGRANTS IN DETENTION IN OHIO: #FreeThemAll

Did you know that the sheriffs of four counties in Ohio are holding ICE immigrant detainees? Local governments are doing the dirty work of the feds in Butler, Geauga, Morrow, and Seneca County Jails.  Unjust and insane! Thousands of doctors have spoken out on the need to IMMEDIATELY release detainees in ICE custody. We must demand that our public health departments wake up and echo this urgent call.  Immigrant detainees are so desperate that some have gone on hunger strikes, knowingly weakening their immune systems. Lives are in jeopardy as COVID-19 continues to spread.
