Protesters calling attention to conditions inside state prisons took to the streets to voice their concerns and honk their horns at Central Prison in Raleigh.

Julie Schneyer,organizer of the protest, joined the dozens of people who took part in the “social distance protest” in their vehicles as others held up signs while walking around the prison. She and others demanded an end to solitary confinement practices and improved food and medical treatment during the coronavirus outbreak.

“Over years and years, what we’ve seen in DPS facilities is systematic, ignoring of any kind of human rights,” Schneyer said.
