This week, we continue to air urgent messages from people on the impact of the coronavirus on prisoners around the world and closer to home. We start off with a call from a prisoner at Waupun Correctional, in Wisconsin, where an outbreak of COVID-19 has been reported. We share a statement from someone in Brazil about the recent prison breaks, and the impact of the pandemic on prisons in their area. Via our coronavirus hotline, we also hear from a supporter of Marius Mason as well as a prisoner at Rikers Island, where they have begun releasing prisoners due to the pandemic.
If you or someone you know has updates on the coronavirus pandemic’s impact on prisoners, you can call our hotline and record a message to be played on the air. Please call (765) 343-6236.
