Calling JUSTICE REFORM ADVOCATES and/or incarcerated people

Our social/political commentary podcast needs people to speak on how COVID-19 has impacted the prison systems *internationally*

Hello,

I am doing a podcast called Six Feet Apart in which a couple of Laidlaw Scholars, along with myself, conduct commentary and journalism on the effect of COVID-19 on social/political spaces. 

Here's a link if you want to check it out:

Does anybody have connections to justice reform advocates and/or incarcerated people? My co-hosts and I are doing an episode about how prison systems are being impacted by COVID-19 and we would like to feature people who have been exposed to that system. 

My deadline is this Friday (08/28/20). 
Please let me know,
Joelle Weir

Hi Joelle! Will reach out on Twitter to see if there are any connections.

Also, The View Magazine is about women in the UK prison system - maybe reach out to them? https://theviewmag.org.uk/

Other suggestions:

Prison Reform Trust http://www.prisonreformtrust.org.uk/

The Sentencing Project https://www.sentencingproject.org/ 

Twitter accounts: https://twitter.com/OurEmptyChairhttps://twitter.com/Thediaryofapri1, https://twitter.com/prisonsincovid - many more can be found from there! 

Hope that helps :)
