The Effects of Mass Incarceration on Communities of Color in the Wake of COVID-19
1:30 PM EDT
This webinar will address the current effects of mass incarceration on communities of color during the COVID-19 pandemic. Incarcerated individuals, the majority of whom are Black, have contracted COVID-19 at rates three times as high as others in the United States, and have died from the virus at rates higher than the general population. Nationwide, fewer than 20% of individuals incarcerated in state and federal prisons have been vaccinated.
