In their Left and the Law segment, Jan Haaken and Mike Snedeker look at the picture that is emerging of the coronavirus spreading in jails and prisons in the US. They discuss the lawsuits and political actions taken by prisoners themselves to address the pandemic and the growing movement for decarceration as the pandemic and public health fears brings these and other vulnerable groups out from the shadows and into more visibility.
