Alliance for Safety and Justice and Crime Survivors for Safety and Justice Call for Governor DeSantis to Prevent COVID-19 Spread by Supporting Vulnerable Communities

The largest criminal justice reform group in the country, Alliance for Safety and Justice (ASJ), and Crime Survivors for Safety and Justice (CSSJ), a national network of over 42,000 crime survivors, called for Florida to take action in support of vulnerable communities to stop the spread of Coronavirus throughout the state.
