Prison inmates and prisons in the United States are particularly susceptible to coronavirus infection. To this end, some states have taken security measures and even let some non-violent offenders go. Even so, some states have not taken enough measures to protect inmates in prisons and local prisons from COVID-19, and Meek Mill encourages its fans and followers to make some noise about it.
On Wednesday (March 25th) Meek Mill told his fans how they were going for the new S.A.F.E.R. of the REFORM Alliance. Plan to protect detainees from completing COVID-19.
Mills criminal justice organization has the S.A.F.E.R. Plan the last week of how prisons and surveillance offices can prevent the pandemic from spreading among its inmates, as well as the guards and staff who leave these facilities daily and contact the public.
"We fight hard, but we need everyone's voice now. Talk to your governor today and ask him to protect people behind bars from # COVID19. Safer prisons = safer communities," Philly's rapper tweeted along with a link to REFORM Alliance digital tool.
Currently, most prisons and prisons across America do not provide an adequate environment to implement the CDC and WHO recommended social detachment and self-quarantine practices for the 2.3 million detainees imprisoned.
With his own experience of detention, Meek Mill has been a pronounced figure for criminal justice reform. This new call to action is just the latest of his attempts to improve conditions for inmates.
