Resources

Our goal is to produce clear and accessible policy guidance and make it available to practitioners and the public. You will find our white papers, policy roadmaps, briefings, technical manuals, and data tools for all of the JHD work streams on this page. Each of these resources has been developed in close collaboration with our network of local leaders and experts to ensure that the policy recommendations are practical and easy to implement, based on principles of equity, and responsive to local needs.

The COVID-19 Vaccine: What You Should Know (For Loved Ones of Those Who are Incarcerated)

#justice #democracy #policy #vaccines #prisons

History shows that prisons, jails, and detention centers are not designed to be sites of health care and well-being. They are sites of punishment with a track record of unethical, inhumane, and degrading treatment of individuals. These problems make even more important the need to 1) understand what COVID-19 is and 2) choose options that both safeguard constitutional rights and protect the health of your loved ones.

The SARS-CoV-2 virus and resultant coronavirus disease (COVID19) have caused unprecedented suffering among incarcerated individuals since the beginning of the pandemic. While many believe that widespread vaccination in carceral settings will solve the problem, this perspective underestimates the severity of the situation and mischaracterizes its driver. Vaccines are a necessary but insufficient component to what should be comprehensive, immediate, and ethical response to COVID-19 in carceral settings across the United States.

Vaccination plus Decarceration — Stopping Covid-19 in Jails and Prisons

#justice #democracy #policy #prisons

“Covid-19 has exposed the inadequacy of the public health infrastructure in the United States and forced us to confront associated biosocial dynamics that are driving the pandemic, including poverty, structural racism, distrust, unequal access to health care, and other social sources. But perhaps no collective preexisting condition has been more acute and preventable than that associated with the U.S. system of mass incarceration.”
