Help People in Prison in Arizona During This Crisis

The outbreak of COVID-19 is a dire and unexpected emergency that calls for sweeping and momentous action immediately in Arizona’s prisons.

We urge Gov. Doug Ducey and the Board of Executive Clemency to save lives by expediting the review and granting of clemency to elderly and medically frail people in prison without delay.

We are calling on Governor Doug Ducey and the Board of Executive Clemency to protect vulnerable populations within the Arizona Department of Corrections, Rehabilitation, and Reentry by granting medical clemency to elderly and medically infirm individuals so that they can be released and isolate themselves at home immediately. This action will help reduce the spread of COVID-19 among staff and people in prison, minimize outbreaks and deaths inside prisons, and keep precious hospital beds in and outside of prison open for seriously ill patients.

The outbreak of COVID-19 is a dire and unexpected emergency that calls for sweeping and momentous action immediately in Arizona’s prisons. Prisons are overcrowded, lack sufficient cleaning materials and soap, and house a large number of elderly and medically fragile people. These people pose a minimal risk to the community and are unlikely to reoffend, and are of high risk of infection and death if they contract COVID-19.

Unprecedented situations, such as the alarming spread of COVID-19, call for unprecedented and drastic measures.

We urge Governor Ducey and the Board of Executive Clemency to save lives by expediting the review and granting of clemency to elderly and medically frail people in prison without delay.
