Inmates at the Lane County Jail have been on a hunger strike for more than six weeks. They are demanding the jail provide stronger protections against COVID-19, as well as better access to religious services, meetings with lawyers and family, and lower bail. We hear from Momo Wilms-Crowe, an organizer with Lane County Mutual Aid, about what prompted the strike, and how the inmates are doing.
