People incarcerated in Indiana’s prisons are at high risk for COVID-19, and cases continue to rise with one reported death. Holcomb: Release Them Now!

Meet at 2pm EST in Ben Davis Park (Girls School Rd entrance, gravel lot in front of Adventure Fun Park) to rally and listen to recordings from people on the inside describing conditions in the prisons. Then at 3pm we will march and drive past Indiana Women’s Prison, honking and displaying signs in solidarity with those inside.
