Time is running out for those incarcerated in North Carolina prisons, prison guards and staff and surrounding communities.
Prisons and those housed within are particularly vulnerable to an outbreak of COVID-19. It is imperative that Governor Roy Cooper use his powers of clemency, reprieve, and commutation to significantly reduce the prison population especially the elderly, frail, and those who pose no significant public safety risk.
So far Roy Cooper has done nothing despite repeated requests by advocates and experts.
Please use your voice and your power to demand action. You can call him at 919-814-2000 or email at Roy.Cooper@nc.gov or Governor.nc. gov. Ask him to immediately reduce the prison population for the safety of those incarcerated, the correctional staff and surrounding communities.
