Meeting of the LUI Working Group Against COVID-19 Death Chambers
Time & Location
About the Event
We have flexibility as to the date and time, however, in the interest of progress, Thursday - September 17, 2020 @ 7:30 pm CT is set for an organizational meeting via Zoom video conferencing of the Working Group Against COVID-19 Death Chambers, spearheaded by Louisiana United International, Inc. (LUI). This coalition of U.S. criminal justice system and prison reform advocates as well as prisoner/human rights activists is focused on accomplishing these objectives:
1. establish through public awareness initiatives, investigation/prosecution requests, and litigation that U.S. government exposure of its incarcerated populations to otherwise avoidable risks of COVID-19 infection violates the civil, constitutional, and human rights of each person so confined, and may well entail violations of criminal law;
2. as to the people they incarcerate, arrange for each local jail/detention facility, state Department of Corrections, and the Federal Bureau of Prisons to retain locally well-established, authentic voices/advocates for said populations to facilitate their controlled evacuation, placement, and monitoring in accord with the Working Group's prescribed decarceration formula;
3. otherwise help minimize the risk of genocide attendant to America's response to the COVID-19 pandemic with regard to its incarcerated populations; and
4. help ensure appropriate accountability for suffering and deaths occasioned by failures of U.S. government to reasonably protect its incarcerated populations from exposure to the COVID-19 virus.
Please prepare to update our Working Group at its upcoming meeting on efforts by/in your state to comply with CDC guidelines for Correctional and Detention Facilities.
