ACLU of Louisiana executive director Alanah Odoms Hebert was interviewed on Democracy Now! about the devastating racial disparities of the COVID-19 pandemic and the ACLU's work to release vulnerable populations from prisons and jails. 

"This pandemic has laid bare issues of disparity that have been embedded in our country since its founding," said Odoms Hebert. "Black and brown communities do not have the protections they need."
