Growing Energy behind #LessIsMoreNY

We have a lot to share about the growing energy behind #LessIsMoreNY this week.

Join Us Next Thursday 2/4: CT Statewide Criminal Justice Reform Monthly Call

COVID-19 continues to spread in Connecticut’s jails and prisons. The 19th incarcerated person passed away from COVID-19 this week, making this the sixth incarcerated person to die from COVID-19 since the start of the year.

Additionally, while the State of CT initially included incarcerated individuals in Phase 1b of the State’s vaccination plan for COVID-19, that State has not yet begun to vaccinate all incarcerated people in Connecticut prisons while vaccinations for other groups in the phase have moved forward. We continue to call on Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont to provide vaccines for everyone in prison, and to take action and #FreeThemNowCT.

Join us next Thursday, February 2nd from 11 a.m. – 12 p.m. for our next Connecticut Statewide Criminal Justice Reform Call held via zoom to learn more about the current rise of COVID-19 in CT’s prisons and jails and to hear updates from organizers and advocates working to advance criminal justice reform in Connecticut.

Register for the call here!
