ABSTRACT

California Voters Support Releasing People from Jails & Prisons to Protect Communities from COVID-19: Now Governor Newsom Must Act   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Executive Summary: "Across the country and throughout the world, there has been wide recognition that reducing the number of people inside jails and prisons is critical to slowing the spread of the coronavirus-- both within these facilities and in the general public. [...] Simply put, this is a matter of our mutual survival. That is why doctors, reform advocates, judges, and law enforcement officials have embraced this decarceration strategy, which both conservative and liberal voters support. Decarceration is especially urgent in California, where prisons have been overcrowded for decades."
