In our current global health crisis, women in jails and prisons face challenges like no others and like never before.
People in correctional facilities are 300% more likely to get coronavirus and 500% more likely to succumb to the virus, according to a study by researchers at Johns Hopkins and UCLA published this month in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
unPrison Project is working to address the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) on the people and communities we serve.
We have partnered with teams of sewing crews to provide size-specific cloth masks for incarcerated women, men, and you. We’re working as best we can to provide masks, as well as to supply masks for women in substance abuse treatment centers.
unPrison Project has modified programming and services to meet the current needs as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. We’re creating Life Skills webinars for virtual delivery into prisons.
Many of you ask, “How can help?”
You can please help support our transition into virtual programming with a donation, below. Thank you.
