People living in correctional settings have been at particularly high risk during the COVID-19 pandemic, creating a situation with large public health and racial justice implications. In this webinar, we hear from Amanda Klonsky and Michael Everett of the UCLA Law COVID Behind Bars Data Project, John Eason of the Justice Lab at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, Danielle Wallace of the Center for Violence Prevention and Community Safety at Arizona State University, and Kristin Turney of the PrisonPandemic Project. The presenters discuss the scope of the pandemic within correctional institutions, the ways in which the pandemic has exacerbated existing inequalities in these settings, and the experiences of people living in jails and prisons since early in 2020.
