Do Not Leave Prisoners in the Paths of Hurricanes

When Hurricane Harvey hit Texas and Louisiana in 2017, prisoners were left locked-up in its path.

Another hurricane or tropical storm is threatening the Gulf Coast.

Please take a moment to sign the petition below. Then please call the facilities on the list of phone numbers on the next page and demand that they evacuate all prisoners in the storm’s path, immediately.

We'll be able to deliver this petition to all relevant authorities now and during hurricanes and other disasters to come.

Do not leave prisoners locked-up in the paths of hurricanes, tropical storms, floods, fires, or other life-threatening disasters.
