States and municipalities around the country have turned to the criminal legal system to control COVID-19 transmission. From the creation of new public health orders with punitive responses to the enforcement of existing criminal laws, we have seen and continue to see criminalization, policing and surveillance practices utilized as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Join us on Thursday, July 2nd at 10am EST for Molecular Surveillance 101: What HIV Advocates Need to Know. In this webinar, Breanna Diaz (She/Her), Policy Director for Positive Women’s Network-USA, will discuss what COVID-19 criminalization is, the disproportionate effects COVID-19 criminalization has on Black, Indigenous, and people of color communities (BIPOC), LGBTQ people, and immigrants, the intersection of HIV & COVID-19 criminalization, and federal and state actions taken to address it.
