Jay-Z and Meek Mill’s organization–the REFORM alliance revealed they would be sending roughly 100,000 surgical masks to various correctional institutions in the United States.

The correctional facilities included in the mask drop are the Mississippi State Penitentiary at Parchman and Rikers Island in New York. It was noted 50,000 masks would be sent to Rikers Island, along with another 2,500 to their medical facility. 40,000 masks would be sent to the Tennessee Department of Corrections, and 5,000 masks would be sent to Parchman. REFORM’s Chief Advocacy Officer Jessica Jackson said:

“It’s a very vulnerable population. We’re really worried about the number of people coming in and out of the facility, and the fact that the people living there might be sitting ducks during this pandemic.”
