Through our hotline, [email protected], we’ve heard from over 100 people with incarcerated loved ones – mostly in the state’s prisons – reporting that people are in danger, and that they are terrified now that the virus is in the prisons.
ACLU of Ohio Expresses Concern in Letter to Gov. DeWine Regarding the Prevention & Management of COVID-19 for Incarcerated Ohioans
