Meek Mill Has a Coronavirus Prevention Plan for Prisons
“In the midst of a viral epidemic, continuing to operate in this fashion is, to put it bluntly, insane,” added Arthur Rizer, director of criminal justice & civil liberties at R Street Institute.
“Yet far too many local and state courts, jails, prisons, and probation and parole offices continue to proceed as if nothing has changed—even as schools, bars, restaurants, gyms, and businesses shutter because of COVID-19. Our nationwide addiction to incarceration seems unbreakable, even when it puts us at risk of disease.”
REFORM Alliance is an organization that Mill started with businessman and fellow rapper Jay-Z, New England Patriot owner Robert Kraft, and Kynetic CEO Michael Rubin. Its goal is to “dramatically reduce the number of people who are unjustly under the control of the criminal justice system—starting with probation and parole,” according to the REFORM Alliance website.
