Health Crises in American Prisons: Protecting Prisoners from Disease

March 23, 2021 • 12:30 PM • Virtual

Incarcerated people are particularly vulnerable to disease, yet the prison system does very little to protect them. Duke Human Rights Law Society invites you to hear a panel of civil rights attorneys discuss the class action work they do to combat health care crises in U.S. prisons and jails. The Legal Director for the ACLU of Tennessee, Thomas Castelli, will discuss cases on lack of Hepatitis C treatment for inmates as well as COVID-19 precautions. ACLU Staff Attorney Andrea Woods will also discuss the work she does to improve health protections for prisoners throughout this pandemic. Please submit your questions here: and during our live Q&A. Sponsored by Duke Human Rights Law Society. For more information, please contact Ivy Moore at | Meeting ID: 989 3568 6860
