The Fight for Second Chances

Description (Dublin Core)

As COVID-19 threatens the safety of inmates and staff in the Arizona Department of Corrections, families with incarcerated loved ones are pushing for the state to release some non-violent offenders early.

So far, they have not swayed officials... but in November, voters will have a chnace to decide whether certain non-violent offenders should be able to earn time off their sentences.

This story discusses the challenges of political activism amidst a pandemic.
