    The Searchlight Series: Living in Prison During COVID-19

    Eastern State Penitentiary Historic Site

    2027 Fairmount Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19130
    • Tuesday March 2nd 2021, 6:00am to 7:00am
    Prisons and jails are experiencing infection rates up to five times that of the general public. What is life like for people living in these crowded and increasingly infected institutions?

    Two members of the Pennsylvania Institutional Law Project team present a new animated film, featuring the literal voices of incarcerated Pennsylvanians reflecting on this critical moment.

    This event is part of Eastern State's ongoing Searchlight Series of events addressing issues in contemporary corrections. The Searchlight Series discussions take place the first Tuesday of every month, free and open to the public. No reservations required. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, this discussion will take place virtually.
