Prisons + COVID-19 = Death Press Conference Excerpts

A coalition of advocates and community members hosted a coordinated statewide virtual press conference, noise demonstrations, and car caravans outside two state prisons and the Governor’s mansion to call on Governor Cuomo to grant immediate clemencies to incarcerated New Yorkers vulnerable to COVID-19. Today we air excerpts of the press conference with speakers outside of Bedford Hills, a women’s prison in Westchester County, Otisville Correctional Facility, where at least on person has already died of COVID-19 and starting here in Albany at the Governor’s Mansion with Thomas Kearny of RAPP Campaign.
