IPNO’s Monday Memo:
Every Incarcerated Person Deserves to be Treated with Dignity and Humanity Even in a Pandemic
“He said, ‘I just need you to make sure I have money on my account, so when [soaps and bleach] become available I can stock up on it’,” she said. Listen to Dominque here:
- Call and email your legislators and the Governor, and demand that they provide for the health and safety of Louisiana’s incarcerated individuals, and immediately release prisoners with already commuted or recommended commuted sentences.
- Support our incarcerated and freed clients here. They have few resources and need your help during this pandemic. If you want to help support a specific freed client, see their individual fundraising page here. Many of them have lost their jobs, run short on groceries and cleaning supplies, and are working with IPNO to navigate the already burdened unemployment services.
