Demands to Protect Incarcerated Children During COVID-19 Pandemic

Today, LCCR sent a letter to juvenile justice stakeholders across the state urging them to take immediate measures to protect incarcerated children from COVID-19. To stave off a public health emergency in our juvenile jails and prisons, we are calling for a swift and dramatic reduction in the number of children in custody.  For youth who will not be released, we demand that state and local facilities take serious precautions to protect their health, safety, and constitutional rights.
