Duncan Tarr

Not sentenced to death, but dying: COVID-19 in the carceral state.

Researcher Duncan Tarr reports on the COVID-19 pandemic and prisoner uprisings across the largest carceral network in human history - the United States - and explains why the only course towards a safe and just society is the dismantling of the prison system, and the freedom of incarcerated people.

Duncan is co-author of the report First 90 Days of Prisoner Resistance to COVID-19: Report on Events, Data, and Trends from Perilous.
