Tell Congress to release people in prison at-risk of COVID-19
Patrick Jones and Nicholas Rodriguez were among the hundreds of thousands of people behind bars for drug offenses. Now they have become some of the first people in federal prison to tragically die of COVID-19.
Time is running out to prevent even more fatalities. The Emergency Community Supervision Act would help reduce dangerous overcrowding in federal prisons by transferring into community supervision individuals who are medically vulnerable, people over 50 years of age, and people within 12 months of release from incarceration from federal custody.
Tell Congress to support this critical bill and immediately release people in federal prison who are at-risk of COVID-19.
