White Paper by AFSC and Carceral State Project

A white paper written by American Friends Service Committee – Michigan Criminal Justice Program and Carceral State Project at the University of Michigan presents an evidence-based case for decarceration as the only humane and meaningful response to the COVID-19 pandemic in prison. It includes an overview of the relationship between prisons and public health, details about the current conditions inside Michigan prisons, recommendations for policy changes that must be implemented, examples of compassionate approaches to communal care, and evidence that our elected officials are culpable for the deaths of dozens of people in prison.
